Congratulations to our own Russ Spicer, CEO and Founder of the Lowcountry Foundation for Wounded Military Heroes, for being selected by the Emily Geiger Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution to receive their 2022 Community Service Award.
Joined by several LFWMH Board/Committee Members and his proud wife, Karen, Russ was presented with the service award by Krista Taracuk, Regent NCDAR on November 10th, at the Palmetto Electric Company.
Designed to recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the community, especially in support of our local military personnel, we couldn’t think of anyone more deserving of this honor. Russ’ contributions have impacted not only those in the Bluffton community, but soldiers and their families who have a connection with the Lowcountry of South Carolina and Georgia’s Coastal Empire.
On behalf of everyone involved with our Foundation, especially those who have and will benefit from your initiative and support, we “SALUTE” you and thank you for all you have done. You have touched more lives than you can ever imagine.

Ladies foursome on the 9th hole... judging by the smiles, it was a great day!
We continue to be amazed and humbled by this event and its organizers, the wonderful veterans and the Crescent community. Through a combination of sponsorships, raffles, 50/50, mulligans and remembrance signage, they presented the LFWMH with a donation of $17, 077!
With deepest gratitude, we thank all who supported this terrific event!
On October 20th, the newly opened Victoria's Treasures hosted a Wine Tasting and Home Decor Event at their store, with the ticket proceeds benefitting the
Lowcountry Foundation for Wounded Military Heroes.
All who attended had a great time tasting wines and flavorful treats (thank you tacarÓn!), as they enjoyed live music and shopping. We send out our gratitude to the hosts and guests for the opportunity to get together and raise funds for this cause so close to our hearts - our Wounded Heroes. Thank you so much!
The LFWMH was so excited to have the opportunity to host
the LFWMH 10th Wounded Heroes Golf Classic on Monday May 24th, at both the Hampton Hall and Oldfield Golf Clubs. We were honored to welcome
over 60 Combat Wounded Servicemen & Servicewomen to
a day filled with honor guards, feats from the sky, lots of sunshine, golf,
good food and the best company we could possibly imagine, our Wounded Heroes.
To the Combat Wounded Military Heroes we were honored to host and to those whom LFWMH works on behalf of, THANK YOU for your service and sacrifice.
While our final numbers are still being tallied, we wish to take a moment to thank:
... our guest speakers for sharing their journeys with us;
... our underwriters, donors, attendees and bidders for their incredible generosity;
... the Hampton Hall and Oldfield Club members and staff for their support;
... and to recognize the energizing can-do, let's get it done determination of
our two-hundred plus volunteers ...
together, all of you made the 10th Annual LFWMH Golf Classic
a milestone most memorable.
We are honored and humbled by your continued support of our organization
and the Wounded Military Heroes we serve. You have our profound gratitude and deepest thanks,
The Lowcountry Foundation for Wounded Military Heroes
