||Hammonton, NJ: The 12th Annual John R. Elliott Be a Hero Golf Tournament hosted by MediLink Homecare, Inc. will be held on Wednesday, May 16th, 2012 at the Sand Barrens Golf Club in Swainton, NJ. Proceeds from the outing will benefit the Hero Campaign for Designated Drivers which has been formed to encourage people to participate in designated driver campaigns throughout our state and nation.
In the past eleven years, the Be a Hero Golf Tournament has raised over $500,000 for this very worthy cause. Sandy Tzaferos, President of MediLink Homecare, states "it is wonderful to see the continued support and enthusiasm the community has for this event. We are honored to host this tournament, and to be a part of the Elliott's mission to prevent this type of tragedy from happening to another innocent family."
"Our 12th year is an incredible milestone for our event, we are grateful to all of our volunteers, sponsors, and players who have made this tournament such a success year after year," states Anne DiRenzo, MediLink's VP, Business Development and Tournament Coordinator.
John Elliott graduated in May 2000 from the United States Naval Academy with a B.S. in Systems Engineering and received his commission as an Ensign in the United States Navy. At the U.S. Naval Academy, John was selected the outstanding HERO Officer in his class. He was preparing to attend Naval Flight Officer School in Pensacola, Fla. at the time of his tragic accident. In his honor, and in an effort to end drunken driving fatalities and accidents, the Hero Campaign has been established.
