Heroes United Golf Scramble League (407) 434-9080

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization excited to promote physical and mental well-being for disabled veterans and first-responders through golf competition. We pride ourselves in how we unite people through shared experiences and a family-like atmosphere where we come together to lift up and support one another... and play a little golf, too!
We hope to build this organization by spreading the word about our League to any disabled Veterans and First-Responders to join as players. We are also seeking support for our League through sponsorship because the ultimate goal is to offer the League free of charge to our golfers. We are also looking for donations to offer as prizes and end-of-season awards.
Below you will find multiple opportunities to learn more about us, including an article written by our local Orlando VA. We hope you'll take a few minutes to see what we're about and hope to build a relationship supporting our Veteran and First-Responder Heroes.

Rebuild Yourself - (407) 577-1084

Website: www.rebuildselfcare.com

Rebuild Yourself is a nonprofit organization serving youth from 10-18 years old on building friendships and working on social peer interaction. As an organization we are looking for local donors in the community to assist with Quarterly Event Fundings, weekly activities for the teenagers, and assistance with annual events.

As a young organization we are looking to build a strong network of partners who also share in our passion to provide social interactions and building friendships for youth in the Lake Nona Community. 100% of any awarded funds would directly go to building our programs and contribute to positively impacting these teenagers and building those relationships with one another.

Additionally, any formed partnerships will be mutually beneficial because not only will they allow us to serve as many adolescents as possible, it will show these youth that their community cares for them. We hope you consider supporting our mission and being a cornerstone to the foundation of Rebuild Yourself Inc.
