Meg’s Gift recently hosted its golf tournament, silent auction and dinner for 450 attendees at Shadow Lake and Greystone golf clubs.
The organization recently presented $55,000 to Veterans Outreach Center of Rochester to further its efforts in providing compassionate medical and mental health care to soldiers returning home.
VOC will soon open Priscilla’s House, a home for female veterans, in honor of a longtime board member and donor. It will be located on Cypress Street, close to the Richards and Otto House for male veterans and VOC so that residents can easily receive services.
A portion of the donation will be used to build a Meg’s Gift room at Priscilla’s House. The room will be an enclosed porch in the front of the house and will feature a plaque honoring Meg’s Gift and decorations inspired by Meg.
Meg’s Gift was also able to support outside groups, including East House and the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
The nonprofit thanks its leadership team, sponsors, donors, volunteers and supporters for the event’s success and their abilities to reach out and assist those most in need. Meg’s Gift advocates for mental health intervention and nurtures an inspirational legacy through community involvement and support.
The next tournament will be Aug. 12, 2017.
