Fundraiser benefits Naval Special Warfare community
ANAHEIM, CA – Over 140 construction workers from a dozen companies came together in Southern California to recognize the sacrifices of military members and support their families. Rosendin’s 6th Annual Golf Tournament raised more than $200,000 for the nonprofit Navy SEAL Foundation (NSF) to provide immediate and ongoing support for the Naval Special Warfare community.
Since 2016, Rosendin’s annual industry golf outing has collected more than $1.2 million to support families of Navy SEALS and Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen (SWCC’s). The employee-owned electrical contracting company held this year’s fundraiser on May 27th at Monarch Beach Golf Links in Dana Point.
“We want to thank California’s construction industry for joining us in raising awareness and funds to support the important work of the Navy SEAL Foundation,” said David Lincoln, Senior Vice President of Rosendin’s Renewable Energy Group and NSF Committee Member. “Rosendin recognizes the incredible value Veterans bring to our community and our industry and we will continue to support them through fundraisers, volunteer efforts, and career development.”
Established in 2000, the Navy SEAL Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit benevolent organization that provides over 30 essential programs for SEALS, SWCC’s, Veterans, and their families. The organization is headquartered in Virginia Beach, VA and helps members transition to successful careers in the civilian sector.
Veterans from every branch of the military have found successful career paths at Rosendin. The company was founded in 1919 by WWI Navy Veteran Moses Rosendin, a proud U.S. citizen who grew the company by helping the country’s wartime efforts in WWII.
