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. The money was raised at the Wounded Heroes Golf Classic, hosted by the group in May at Hampton Hall Golf Club in Bluffton.

Combined with the events of the previous three years, the foundation has raised more than $300,000 for Birdies for the Brave.
