Less than a month after announcing a joint capital campaign to build a veterans' services center in Frederick, Platoon 22 raised more than $50,000 for the cause.
The organization hosted its fourth annual golf tournament at Holly Hills Country Club Monday, in an event sponsored by Bellwether Insurance Partners.
The tournament, launched by marine veteran and vice president of Platoon 22 Caleb Sera, has grown from raising $8,000 in its first year to more than $50,000 this year, according to the organization.
Earlier this month, Goodwill Industries of Monocacy Valley and Platoon 22 announced a capital campaign that will raise $2 million to build a veterans' services center. The center will be built as part of a multi-building site on a plot of land off Monocacy Boulevard across from the Wells Fargo building B location near Riverside Corporate Park.
The group expects to break ground on the 20,000 square-foot center later this year, said Platoon 22 Founder Danny Farrar.
