Lt. Dan Weekend an independent effort

info@islandpacket.comFebruary 1, 2013 

A story in the Jan. 23 Beaufort Gazette concerning the invoice for city services for the Lt. Dan Weekend 3 in Beaufort had the following statement: "Lt. Dan Weekend is conducted by the Independence Fund and benefits the Wounded Warrior Project."

The Independence Fund ( is a Beaufort-based, all-volunteer foundation with 93 percent of all funds raised going directly to veteran care and has no association with the Wounded Warrior Project.

Missing from the story was that a large part of the city's invoice reduction was that The Greenery donated more than $3,000 of its services as an in-kind donation to the Independence Fund.

The LDW3 team would again thank the city of Beaufort for its excellent support for services associated with the weekend. It was great.
