Prime Timers of Central Florida, along with people across the United States and around the world, awoke on the morning of June 12, 2016, to the news of the massacre at Pulse, one of Orlando's GLBT nightclubs.
A lone gunman, Omar Mateen, killed 49 people and wounded 53 more in the early hours of Sunday morning. Some of those killed and wounded were known by PTCF members.
In recent newsletters, this fund has been mentioned several times. With the recent "Orlando Massacre", it was suggested as a place to make donations. With the passing of our founder, Woody Baldwin, it has again been mentioned. I'd like to take this time to give some background information about the fund and how it operates and helps promote our organization.
