      By Charles Dame
         The 2023 WeDoGood Fallen Veterans Golf Tournament,
      held at Hammock Creek Golf Club in Palm City on Sept. 10
      in memory of Vietnam Veteran Al Hazen, not only brought
      out the community for a day of sport but also rallied spirits
      to raise over $8,500 for the Hazen family. The event was an
      overwhelming success, proving once again that when it comes
      to supporting our heroes and their families, WeDoGood and
      the larger Florida community are in it for the long game.

         The sunny skies and immaculate greens were only
      outdone by the golfers themselves, who were committed to
      making each swing count for the cause. “One good deed can
      change everything,” is a philosophy WeDoGood stands by,                                               Elena  McLaughlin and Brigid McLaughlin of Camp
