Algonquin Announces Supporting Our Troops Event

July 1, 2010

Greenwich, CT - Algonquin Advisors and Blue Orchid Capital are proud to sponsor a one day charity golf event, "Supporting Our Troops", at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club.  The event will raise funds and awareness in support of our nation's military and their families.

One of the simple facts of the past decade is that our Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard have been put in harm's way.  Many of them return home to face the reality of an injury that will forever change the way they are able to lead their lives.  Our wounded warriors may have physical, mental or family issues with which they now have to deal.  As Americans who directly benefit from their service, we must do all we can to support them as they move forward with their lives.  This benefit will directly support the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund and the Troops First Foundation, two wonderful organizations created to assist fallen and wounded warriors.

ABOUT:  The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, a national leader in supporting the men and women of the United States Armed Forces and ther families, has raised over $120 million in support for the families of military personnel lost in service to our nation, and for the severely wounded military personnel and veterans.  The Fund most recently opened the National Intrepid Center of Excellence to support the research, diagnosis and treatment of military personnel and veterans suffering from traumatic brain injury.  For more information: www.fallenheroesfund.org.

ABOUT:  Troops First Foundation (T1F) develops, operates and supports a synergistic group of wellness, quality of life and sports-based initiatives in support of today's military personnel.  In addition, these T1F initiatives facilitate a greater recognition and an enhanced understanding of the quality and character of the men and women who volunteer to serve, their families, their daily sacrifice and the constant need to evaluate and improve their quality of life.  Both non-injured and injured military personnel and their families are served at no cost to them by T1F's strategically integrated quality of life, sports-based and wellness initiatives.  For more information: http://troopsfirstfoundation.org/.
