Veterans Will Benefit from Tennis Tournament January 5, 2013

Frank Froehling Grand Slam Finalist will take part in a benefit tennis tournament to benefit veterans at Mariner Sands Country Club on January 5, 2013.

 
PRLog - Dec. 28, 2012 - STUART, Fla. -- There is still time to reserve your spot to play in the Major Goldsmith Fund Tennis Tournament on Saturday, January 5, 2013 at Mariner Sands. Registration begins at 11 am and tennis begins at noon.  Frank Froehling, a Grand Slam finalist will attend the tournament. The awards lunch will be held at 3 pm followed by a Pro Exhibition at 4 pm. The cost is $65 per person, tax deductible. To sign up, phone Jim Goldsmith at 772-631-4034.

         The fund bears the name of Martin County resident Jim Goldsmith’s father, a WWII veteran and recipient of a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart.  Jim Goldsmith administers the fund personally with no administrative costs. Goldsmith noted, “ 100% of the proceeds go directly to the veterans and families.”

         Jim Goldsmith works in conjunction with the Veterans Council of Martin County. He estimates that over $50,000 has been donated and distributed so far. Contributions are always welcome and checks should be made payable to Veterans Council of Martin County, Inc. with a memo note “Major Goldsmith Fund” and mailed to PO Box 1994, Stuart, FL 34995.

         In November, Jim Goldsmith assisted in the donation of a Ford Windstar minivan at the Stuart Air Show to Doug Winterhalter, a 34 year-old veteran who served ten tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. The van was donated and restored by Todd Harris and Mark Smith of Crown Car Care and Crown Collision, in Palm City and Stuart.  The Major Goldsmith Fund has provided assistance directly to the Winterhalter family.

“I have gotten to know Doug and his family over the past year and they are the real deal,” Goldsmith states. “Doug really wants to get a job but his disability has affected his chances.”

Goldsmith does a thorough background check on every veteran and meets him or her personally prior to providing any assistance.  Goldsmith commented,” In order to ensure that more needy veteran families receive the help the fund allows, we need businesses and citizens to be involved. Please help us in reaching our goal of $20.000.”
