According to their website, "We are also the family that donated the land that the West Los Angeles Veterans Administration occupies today. Our family has been involved with keeping the property veteran centric since 1887.  The Bandini Foundation has been running the Heroes Golf Course since 2011 located at the West Los Angeles Veterans Administration. All veterans play golf free of charge. The Foundation only hires veterans to go through the jobs training program offered at the Heroes Golf Course. We have partnered with many local country clubs to help with the hiring process after the veterans complete the jobs training program. We are also in partnership with the Westside Food Bank to help provide food for homeless veterans."
April 27 - Shea Pitts
Born in Beverly Hills, Shea Pitts decided to attend UCLA because his mom and dad both attended and it is in a location that sets him up best for success in his major.  He lists the biggest thrill in his athletic career as making a tackle for a loss, causing a fumble, and recovering the fumble all in the same play.   His dad and grandpa both played in the NFL for the Packers; his dad played football (defensive back) at UCLA (1981-84) for coach Terry Donahue and was a member of Bruin teams which played in the Rose Bowl following the 1982 and 1983 seasons.  Shea earned his undergraduate degree in Political Science and is currently enrolled in the Transformative Coaching and Leadership graduate program.
