The Darren McCarty Charity Golf Outing honors the memory of Dan O’ Connor. Dan was a Purple Heart Recipient, Iraq War Vet, father, and husband, as well as a friend to all who knew him. Combat veteran Nick Antonucci and professional athlete Darren McCarty teamed up and to create this event after connecting over similar life changing events many will never experience. Through their shared experiences, Darren and Nick realized a support network of family, friends, and concerned citizens was critical support to those who suffer loss from changing professions, whether professional sports or the military. Their collaboration resulted in Operation Valhalla, an organization that offers financial assistance to veterans and their families to assist them with difficult circumstances.
Our community is full of veterans who need help. We work community supporter providing services with the veterans and their families who need them.
