Sudbury for Wounded Warriors started as a discussion among friends during games of poker over the course of a few years subsequent to 9/11.
Bob Haarde, Brendan Mahoney, Todj Gozdeck, Todd Faber and a group of friends would bat around ideas about what could be done to help. When fellow Sudbury resident Army Ranger Lt. Scott Milley was killed in action in Afghanistan, the desire to help out really hit home. With Lt. Milley being killed in action, the group took action and the First Annual Drive Fore Our Troops golf tournament took place less than a year later on September 6, 2011. The event raised $10,000 which was donated to Wounded Warrior Project (WWP). The highlight of the inaugural outing was a moving speech delivered at the dinner by Lt. Cameron Kerr, 101st Airborne Division, who lost part of his leg due to an IED explosion on February 16, 2011.
