They have devoted their allowences, their free time and now their summer vacation to this project. Their website is coming soon so the soldiers all over the world can see their suppport, www.operationteensforourtroops.us.I recently had to stop working my full time job to be able to devote my time to this mission, we have logged over 400 service hours doing volunteer work centered around taking care of our soldiers and their families in the central Fla area. We are just now needing to reach out to the community so that we can continue hosting Festival Fun Days (field days) for children of military personnel among many other activities, so for our first fundraiser, Zellwood Station Golf Club is hosting a Golf Tournament on our behalf, it will be on Saturday, August 30, at 8:30am, 4-man scramble, we are in need of golfers, also hole sponsors, the cost per golfer is $50.00 and anyone can sponsor a hole for $100.00, we will have a professional sign made for each sponsor on the designated hole.
