Fogler Supports Purple Heart Day

 In honor of Purple Heart Day, Atlanta event planning firm WM Events sponsored a hole at the inaugural Purple Heart Day Memorial Golf Tournament hosted by the Military Order of the Purple Heart Chapter 465. For his support, WM Events Principal William Fogler was honored with a Special Recognition Award. “My father was a veteran, so It was important to me to offer my support for veterans on this year’s Purple Heart Day,” says Fogler. “When local organizations hold events that honor members of our community who served, I am happy to be part of that effort.” The golf tournament was held in honor of the late State Department of Veterans Services Commissioner Pete Wheeler, who served in that capacity for 66 years. Proceeds from this year’s event will enable continued assistance to needy veterans and support of local first responders. The day’s events culminated with Atlanta City Hall being lighted in purple
