On Monday, September 21, we had an amazing time at our 6th Annual Golf Tournament, sponsored by Credibility International at Army Navy Country Club.

Even with a reduced number of golfers allowed, we had our most successful event to date which will help AFAC feed our neighbors in need.

Thank you to all the participants, sponsors (listed below), golf committee members, volunteers, and everyone who contributed to the success of this event.
Huge thanks to the staff at Virginia Hospital Center! Throughout the month of September, they held a food drive for AFAC and have donated over 10,000 items to help feed our families in need! We highly appreciate our partnership. Their food drive will be featured on ABC7 shortly. We'll share the clip on our social media when it becomes available.
Thank you to our Golf Sponsors!
