[October 2013] The 4th Annual Quantico Area Industrial Security Council (QAISC) golf tournament was a success with 21 teams playing and $7,500 raised for the Families of the Wounded Fund which provides 100% of all funds received to the families of our service men and women who were injured in combat.
Former NFL player Michael Nelms of the Washington Redskins attended for the second year in a row and signed official footballs that were raffled off for the charity. EOIR also donated $500 in sponsorships directed to the Families of the Wounded Fund and collected hundreds of toiletry items for Soldiers recovering at McGuire Hospital in Richmond, VA.
This year’s tournament was held days before Halloween so many of the volunteer staff arrived in costume. The tournament is typically held around Cinco de Mayo; however due to economic uncertainty with the sequestration, furloughs, and budget cuts, the QAISC postponed the event until October hoping to assist those who were affected earlier in the year. Although, the Government shut down on October 1, the QAISC held the event as planned and was pleased to be able to raise the $7,500 at such a difficult time in the economy.
For over 7 years, EOIR has been an active member of the QAISC, a professional security organization focused on providing education and support for cleared facilities in the defense industry. EOIR’s VP of Operations & Compliance and Corporate Facility Security Officer, Diane Moulton, has served as chairperson of the QAISC since 2010. EOIR has had an integral role in organizing, sponsoring, and operating the Annual QAISC Charity Golf Tournament since its start in 2010.
