It's time for the 2015 AFSA-Virginia Golf Tournament. We’re looking forward to a great tournament again this year! This tournament is a vital fundraiser for the Central Virginia Burn Camp and the Old Dominion Firefighters Association.
The Central Virginia Burn Camp provides children who have been hospitalized with burn injuries the opportunity to play, heal and connect with other young burn survivors and caring adults. Not only do the children have physical reminders of their burns, many of them also have emotional scars. The chance to connect with caring adults, healthcare professionals and other kids who have similar physical and emotional wounds goes a long way toward helping these children develop confidence, self-esteem and regain a sense of trust. The campers attend camp at no charge to them or their families.
The Old Dominion Firefighters Burn Foundation is dedicated to preventing burn injuries, assisting burn survivors in their recovery and enhancing burn care across the Central Virginia region. It is a partnership between professional firefighters associations and the Evan-Haynes Burn Center at the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center. The Foundation’s activities include:
