Honoree 2015 – Tony Guilder

Congrats to Tony Guilder for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!

Name:  Tony Guilder

Nominating Organization:  Strength in Support

Honoree Category:  Human & Community

Why Nominated:  Mr. Tony Guilder approached Strength in Support (SIS) in the spring of 2013 about bringing a golf workshop to our veteran clients. He arranged a partnership between SIS and Mission Viejo Country Club (MVCC). He arranged for Yonex to donate demo clubs for the veterans to use. He has recruited other volunteers from MVCC. He donated the funds for the workshop through his foundation that he created with his wife Tina. He has expanded the workshop to include a social workshop. He has reached out to others to expand the funding for the workshops at MVCC. You can find Tony on most Thursday mornings setting up for the SIS Golf Workshop at MVCC at 8am. He meets the vets and talks to them. They share the highs and lows of life. Then he takes the veterans out to the driving range and uses his past career as a golf pro to teach them perfect swing technique, which is vastly different than the position of firing a weapon. After the golf lesson he has them gather around for lunch. Tony understands that the friendship is as valuable to our veteran clients as the golf lessons. He is truly the heart, soul and pocket book of the SIS Golf Workshop and the SIS Social Philosophy Group, which has been nicknamed by attendees as “Nothing is off topic!” Thank you for allowing SIS to honor and nominate Tony Guilder, best friend to SIS and our local veterans and their families.

Please write a note of congratulations below!
