17th Annual Fisher House Charity Golf Tournament
On April 10, 2017, the Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) Auxiliary welcomed J&J back as a Title Sponsor for their 17th Annual Fisher House Charity Golf Tournament.
This tournament is just one of the many ways J&J chooses to give back to our military community by donating much needed funds in support of the Fisher House Foundation. These funds help provide a “home away from home” to the families of Service Members being treated at major military medical facilities nationwide and in Europe. Fisher Houses are located at almost all of our O&M sites.
This year marked J&J’s 8th year as a Title Sponsor as we remain a Proud Supporter of our nation’s military and veterans!
DID YOU KNOW? Since 1990 Fisher Houses Have Been Serving Military Families During Times of Medical Crisis. These comfort homes are built by the Fisher House Foundation and given as gifts to the Military Services and the Veteran’s Affairs. The Army is the proud recipient of 17 of the 71 existing Fisher Houses.
The Fisher House Foundation was established by noted philanthropist and patriot Zachary Fisher and his wife, Elizabeth. Zachary passed away in June 1999, but his nephew Arnold Fisher, and his grand–nephew, Ken Fisher, continue to build Fisher Houses and carry on Zachary’s legacy of helping military men and women and their families.
