The Department of Veterans Affairs Veterans Canteen Service
Dear Community Partner,
An exciting national event is coming to the Gulf Coast, and we would like
your support to make it a success. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has
selected the Gulf Coast Veterans Healthcare System to host the 31st National
Veterans Golden Age Games (NVGAG) May 7 - 11, 2017.
The Golden Age Games are the premier senior adaptive rehabilitative program
in the United States and the only national seniors program designed to
improve the quality of life for all senior Veterans, including those with a wide
range of abilities and disabilities. The Games provide a multi-event sports and
therapeutic recreation program for military Veterans 55 years of age and older
who receive care through any VA medical facility. Throughout the week more
than 800 men and women who have worn the uniform of the United States of
America and defended our country with honor and dignity will compete, right
here on the Gulf Coast!
We invite you to be a part of this exciting national event by becoming an
individual or corporate/organizational sponsor. Committed volunteers through
our local and national sponsorships are essential in providing a memorable
experience for those Veterans participating in the Games. If you are unable to
be in attendance, but would still like to contribute, you may make a financial or
in-kind donation that will be acknowledged at the commensurate sponsorship
level as identified in the enclosed package.
Our Nation’s Heroes have placed our security and freedom before their own
lives. Their sacrifices create a debt that America can never fully repay. Your
generous gift helps demonstrate our appreciation and will make the 2017
National Veterans Golden Age Games a memorable and significant experience
for all involved. Your support of the NVGAG will ensure a very successful event
for Veterans from around the country as well as our community.
For more information regarding individual and/or corporate/organizational
sponsorship opportunities, please contact me at Robert.Davis854f4@va.gov or
by phone at 228-523-5763.
