The Village at Woodside recently presented a check for $7,422 to the Aiken-Augusta Wounded Warrior Charity Golf Classic committee.


The Village at Woodside holds the 4th of July Celebration each year, and the proceeds are donated to the Aiken-Augusta Wounded Warriors.


Jack Morrison, the chairman of the Aiken-Augusta Wounded Warriors, said, “Each year, The Village at Woodside has increased the quality of this event, which offers one of the few Aiken-area celebrations that is open to the public.”


The July event featured the Mike Frost Band and a live radio broadcast by beach music and oldies station 92.7 FM.


“We are honored to support this organization,” said Kenneth Brodie, of Woodside Development, “because 100 percent of the proceeds benefit the wounded warriors and veterans right here in our local community that help provide our continued freedom.”


The Aiken-Augusta Wounded Warrior Charity Golf Classic committee has as its beneficiaries: the USC Aiken Veteran Success Center, Fort Gordon’s Warrior Transition Battalion and the Wounded Warriors’ Family Christmas Retreat at Camp Gravatt.


This donation, along with the proceeds from the golf tournament and donations from other organizations and individuals, will total more than $50,000 raised this year.


The Women of Woodside have scheduled a pancake breakfast at FATZ in Aiken on Jan. 24, which also will benefit the Aiken-Augusta Wounded Warriors.
