Subcontractors Come Together To Donate $70K To Warrior Canine Connection

Oct 17, 2018

On Monday, 8 October we hosted our 5th Annual DAVIS Charity Golf Tournament at Cattail Creek Country Club. The proceeds raised from this year’s golf tournament went to Warrior Canine Connection (WCC), an organization that utilizes it's Mission Based Trauma Recovery model to help wounded Warriors suffering from post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injuries reconnect with life, their families and their communities through service dogs.

Brought on by our longtime industry partner Associated General Contractors (AGC), DAVIS will be leading the construction for WCC’s new home in Boyds, MD. We’ll be transforming a former historic dairy farm into a space for their breeding and training programs, office and volunteer work spaces, and overnight accommodations for Warriors visiting WCC for advanced training with service dogs.

With the support of over 34 of our longtime partners and subcontractors, we raised $70,000 to be put towards the new home for WCC at the golf tournament!

"Seeing the support of everyone at the tournament gives us hope that our new home will become a reality – we appreciate everything that DAVIS is doing for WCC."

More than 125 golfers and four dogs joined us for a day of fun out on the golf course. Participants got to meet several WCC staff members and the dogs in training before heading out for the day on the course.  At the dinner and closing program, a Navy Veteran moved the crowd while speaking about how WCC saved his life with his dog alongside him.

"The support of our partners each year is invaluable. I am truly amazed by the backing of our subcontractor community. They help us to raise money for great organizations such as the Warrior Canine Connection, who work tirelessly to improve the lives of others.”
