VFSAC Golf Classic: Supporting Military Veterans’ Housing Needs

The Veterans Financial Services Advisory Council (VFSAC), an organization that helps veterans and their families in search of support related to housing and critical services, is holding its First Annual VFSAC Golf Classic this May.

The tournament, which will be held at Stonebriar Country Club in Frisco, Texas, on May 14, will bring together industry leaders as they hit the greens to support our nation’s military families. All the proceeds from this tournament will be donated to Operation Homefront, a national 501(c)(3) that partners with VFSAC to address the ongoing housing needs of veterans and their families.

Former Wells Fago executive and VFSAC council member JK Huey told DS News, “I've participated in many golf tournaments over the past 30 years, and while many of them were for very good causes, this is one that I'm most proud of and excited about.”

Founded by Five Star Global President and CEO Ed Delgado in 2016, VFSAC’s Executive Council includes leaders from Auction.com, Alacrity Services, Aspen Grove Solutions, Five Brothers Asset Management, The Five Star Institute, Home Depot, Operation Homefront, Rushmore Loan Management Services, Safeguard Properties, and ServiceMac. The organization’s current Chair is Terry Smith, CEO for Rushmore Loan Management Services LLC.

The organization’s ongoing initiatives include the “Homes on the Homefront” program that provides mortgage-free homes to veterans and their families looking to reintegrate into the civilian community. Through this plan, VFSAC receives industry donations of distressed residential assets in an “as-is” condition. Through a collaborative effort, it conducts repairs and necessary rehab to restore these homes into a move-in-ready condition for veterans. The program also accepts rehabbed homes from investors, asset management companies, and mortgage companies. Once these homes are move-in ready, they become available as mortgage-free homes to qualified veteran families.

Sponsors for the 2019 VFSAC Golf Classic include ALAW; Aspen Grove Solutions; Auction.com; Carrington; Five Brothers Asset Management; Ginali Associates; Goldman Sachs; Google; LoanCare; National Field Representatives, Inc.; Novare National Settlement Service (A Division of Fidelity National Title); Prominent Escrow Services, Inc. and FIN Title; RSMA Law; Rushmore Cares; Safeguard; ServiceLink; Xome; and York-Jersey Underwriters.
