Thank you so much Kathryn Marsh from Fox 4 and Melinda Lee from Wink News for joining us to help spread the word about this program!

” The H.O.P.E program that AFG conducts with the PGA South Florida Section has made me feel special and appreciated. I am now looking forward to the fun and socializing with my fellow Veterans. Thank you to all who made this program possible.”
