PALM COAST, Fla. - Aug. 8, 2019 - PRLog -- The Flagler Sportfishing Club is pleased to have donated $12,000 to the Disabled American Veterans Tuesday night at the club's August meeting. The meeting was held at the VFW post 8696 located at 47 Old Kings Rd, N. Palm Coast. The money raised was used to purchase another transportation vehicle to transport veterans to and from doctor visits and other destinations. This money is in addition to approximately $7,000 that the club donated last year to be used for the same purpose.

"Anytime we can give back to our veterans, it's a great day," said Club President Captain Chuck Gleichman. "The money donated was raised through our 23rd Annual Spring Classic Fishing Tournament," Chuck added. The SUV vans were purchased at cost and now the group has a total of three vans that are stored at the VFW.

The club has approximately 340 members with about 1/3 of them whom are veterans.

There were 90 boats and one kayak that entered the tournament this year. It was led by co-directors Dana Syens and Rita Waddell and had 128 participants, up from 110 last year.
