A round of applause goes to the Golftoberfest 2010 event, which raised over $14,000 for wounded veterans!

During the event, Soldiers’ Angels Founder and President Patti Patton-Bader received the El Dorado IPSSA Crystal Wing Award, which honors volunteers who go “above and beyond.” Congratulations Patti!
