Donate See Where Your Donation Goes
Hey there, Benevolent Benefactors and Charitable Champions! When you’re dishing out the dough at Guardian Golf, we’re all about letting you call the shots. Not only do you get to decide if your dollars dash off to our general fund or a specific veteran’s project, but you also get the warm, fuzzy feeling of knowing that every cent you donate becomes a high-five to a vet in need. That’s right, 100% of your donation goes straight to our heroes in need. So get ready to kick in for a cause that gives back in spades, with all the laughter and none of the sting!”

On March 26, 2023, Officer Daricaud was tragically shot in the neck during a traffic stop. Despite this, he remains stable and is courageously recovering. His journey ahead is tough, but he’s hopeful.
During this time, his wife and son’s love supports Officer Daricaud. Yet, with hospital and rehab costs, plus lost income, his family faces financial challenges.
Blair Didion, a U.S. Army Medic from 2001-2008, bravely served two tours in Iraq. In 2006, he sustained multiple spinal fractures in combat, marking his service with valor. Born and raised in Sandusky, Ohio, Blair’s life post-service has been challenging.
Recently, Blair, along with his wife and their beloved dog and cat, faced eviction and homelessness. Our organization stepped in to assist, ensuring they find a new home and regain stability. We’re committed to supporting Blair and his family during this difficult period.
