The 5th Annual Carefree's Got Talent (CGT) competition finale drew nearly 1,800 Carefree Community residents to the Lakeland Center in Lakeland, Florida on March 23 and raised an astonishing $33,243 to support Disabled American Veterans (DAV). Carefree has worked closely with DAV over the past three years raising $100,000 in cash and in-kind donations to help veterans get benefit and disability compensation. According to DAV State Veteran Administration Volunteer Service Chairman, Mary Ann Keckler, "100% of the donation will go directly to helping veterans who are determined by the VA to be disabled by an injury or illness that was incurred or aggravated during active military service."
