    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.

    Sincerely,

    Robert E. Davis Robert E. Davis, Sponsorships Chair 2017 NVGAG Local Organizing Committee
