On Monday, Nov. 6, Lowcountry golfers teed up in the 6th Annual Seabrook Island Veteran’s Day Charitable Golf Tournament to recognize veterans and raise money to support the Fisher House Charleston and the Ralph Johnson Veterans Hospital in Charleston. The event is sponsored by the Seabrook Island Club and the Kiawah-Seabrook Exchange Club. The Seabrook Island Club hosted 100 local golfers who wanted to show their support for veterans of all eras. The event raised over $8,000 for the Fisher House and Veterans Hospital. Among honored guests attending the event were 17 veterans from South Carolina who had been wounded in Iraq or Afghanistan. Also honored was WWII veteran and Seabrook Island resident Ed Gillen. The Fisher Flight winning team was composed of Cesare Mastroianni, Jack Miller and Wounded Warriors Aubry Corley and Russ Cooley. The VA Flight champions were Arnold Miniman, Chris Miniman, Phil Squire, and Todd Gerhart.
