NORFOLK, Va., Oct. 11, 2018 – Beacon Health Options, a leader in behavioral health management, is pleased to announce it will host its sixth annual Charity Golf Outing on Tuesday, Oct. 30, at the Bayville Golf Club in Virginia Beach. Proceeds from the outing will go to the National Military Family Association (NMFA), which provides support and guidance for military members and their families.
Locally, Hampton Roads, Va. is home to one of the largest concentrations of Department of Defense personnel in the United States. With more than 100,000 military family members residing here, NMFA’s vital programs help these military families every day. NMFA works to improve awareness of the value of mental health services and in ensuring military families know they can seek help without fear.
“We are proud of our long-standing relationship with the National Military Family Association and the important advocacy work they do on behalf of our military families,” said Chuck Taylor, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, ValueOptions Federal Services, Inc., a Beacon Health Options company. “Behind our brave service men and women, there are family members who share in their sacrifice and provide unending support, and we thank NMFA for being there day in and day out to support our hometown heroes.”
Net proceeds from this year’s outing will help the nonprofit organization with its Operation Purple® Program, including camps that help children deal with a parent’s deployment; Family Retreats that aim to strengthen families after deployment; and its Healing Adventures Program for families of service members who are wounded, ill or injured. The funds will also help provide scholarships to military spouses, as well as support many other programs.
“We are grateful to Beacon Health Options for its steadfast commitment to the military community,” said NMFA Executive Director Joyce Wessel Raezer. “Their continued support of the National Military Family Association ensures that we are consistently able to provide meaningful wellness programming to service members, veterans, and their families.”
At press time, this year’s lead sponsors include: CDW at the Hope Level; HighPoint Solutions at the Courage Level; Accenture and WebbMason at the Support Level; Converge One/Nice, WorkPlace Options, Verizon, ASI Systems and Satsyil at the Recovery Level.
