Funds raised help homeless veterans battling addiction
The Maryland Multi-Housing Association (MMHA) announced this week that its 19th Annual Golf Outing raised more than $10,000 for The Baltimore Station, a therapeutic residential recovery program for homeless men, mainly veterans, who are battling drug and alcohol addiction. This is the sixth consecutive year that MMHA has raised at least $10,000 for The Baltimore Station, and the ninth year that it has chosen The Baltimore Station as the recipient of its Annual Golf Outing funds.
“Year after year we are grateful for the Maryland Multi-Housing Association’s enduring support of The Baltimore Station,” said John Friedel, executive director of The Baltimore Station. “Long-lasting support from organizations like the MMHA allow us to keep helping men work towards a better life.”
On June 9, 2016, 144 golfers gathered at Mountain Branch Golf Club in Joppa, MD to show their support for the organization. Participants enjoyed 18 holes of golf, food, drink, raffles and giveaways. Moran’s Elite Termite and Pest Management Company, Inc. was the lead sponsor of the event.
“Our Annual Golf Outing allows us to play a part in The Baltimore Station’s important mission,” said Adam Skolnik, executive director of MMHA. “We are honored to help veterans in our community turn their lives around.”
The MMHA will celebrate its Annual Golf Outing’s 20th anniversary in June of 2017.
