Aguanga, Calif., residents Pat and Kathy Vick of Community Heroes Project and John Schafer, president of the board of directors of Rancho California RV Resort homeowners association, teamed up with the reopening of fairways six and seven in an effort to raise funds for veterans, the Anza Valley Outlook reported. The event featured a golf tournament, barbecue, lottery and hole-in-one prizes.

Community Heroes Project, a nonprofit organization, was started by the Vicks as a way to help local communities find a way to give back to those who have served. Pat said that often people in a community want to help others and give back, but don’t really know how.

Community Heroes Project is that piece that helps these communities put together an event to raise funds. Their mobile BBQ unit and their ability to join people together works well when paired with a community that wants to help. The result was a day spent helping veterans in need.

Every winter the population of Aguanga grows with the return of many people who come back to California for a sunnier and warmer winter.

Many of these residents live at Rancho California RV Resort. Rancho California RV Resort is a 300-acre gated community, which includes the golf course, pools and a clubhouse. The resort is owned and managed by the homeowners association.
