The Lowcountry Foundation for Wounded Military Heroes donated $115,000 to a charity that supports organizations serving local wounded veterans and service members, according to a news release.

Representatives from the Lowcountry Foundation for Wounded Military Heroes went to the Tournament Players Club at Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra, Fla., on June 2 to give Birdies for the Brave the $115,000 check.
