11th Annual PVGO Breaks Four Million Dollars Raised in Support of Veterans Employment

Agility DGS recently hosted the 11th Annual Paralyzed Veterans Golf Open (PVGO) on June 18, 2018 at the Golf Club at Lansdowne, Virginia. The event this year raised an enormous amount of $277,922, bringing the tournament’s fundraising total to more than $4M dollars raised over the course of 11 years. 

All proceeds from the PVGO support Paralyzed Veterans of America’s PAVE (Paving Access for Veterans Employment) program, providing free, one-on-one career assistance, benefits counseling, and support to any veteran, transitioning service member, military spouse or caregiver.

This year, business leaders, military and government officials, PAVE program counselors, veterans, families, and caregivers came together to support this important program. Some notable attendees included Medal of Honor Recipient Col. Barney Barnum, Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R-VA), and ABC White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl. PVGO Chairman, Rich Brooks, says: “Our mission is to put veterans back to work. We’re here to serve our nation’s heroes, their caregivers and family members, one veteran at a time.”
