LOUISVILLE, KY – V-Soft Cares, the philanthropic arm of V-Soft Consulting, will host its annual charity golf scramble on June 28th, 2021 at the legendary Valhalla Golf Club.
The event will benefit Dogs Helping Heroes, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping restore lost freedom and peace of mind to wounded veterans, first responders and Gold Star Families by gifting specially trained and certified assistance dogs.
“We are excited to be able to provide support for this very deserving group in our community,” said V-Soft President, Purna Veer. “I know many in our V-Soft family who have their own family or friends serving, or they themselves have served in the past. We are honored to help support Dogs Helping Heroes.”
Dogs Helping Heroes started in 2013 by co-founder, David Benson, who trained a Labrador Retriever named Major and gave it to an Iraq War Veteran experiencing PTSD. Countless lives have been changed since then. Each trained service dog costs between $6,000-$7,000, which includes selection, training, boarding, equipment, vet visits and placement to a deserving hero.
“We were delighted to learn that we would receive funding from an organization like V-Soft and are so thankful for their awareness and generosity,” said Kassi Cawood, Board Member and Head of Fundraising for the charity. “Having a partnership like this allows us to reach other organizations through sponsorships and media about our mission. Together we have the opportunity to raise money and awareness about how we can help veterans, first responders, Gold Star Families and rescue dogs from local shelters.”
The annual event, which began in 2014, aims to benefit a different local charity each year. Previous scrambles were focused on cancer-related causes to honor V-Soft Founder, Purna Veer’s, late mother. However, this year’s charity recipient is the first to support veterans and first responders. Since its inception, the V-Soft Cares Annual Charity Golf Scramble has donated more than $105,000 to its charity partners.
V-Soft is still open for sponsors and players for the event. If businesses or individuals are interested in sponsoring or playing to support this inspiring cause, visit www.vsoftcares.org for more information.
