Vermont Veterans golf tournament set for Sept. 5
MANCHESTER — The Vermont Veterans Golf Tournament Committee is hosting its 7th annual tournament on Sept. 5 at Manchester Country Club.
The tournament was born with the intention of focusing awareness on the needs of Vermont’s wounded combat veterans and it has evolved into an event that continues with raising awareness and now also raises money to assist veteran’s organizations providing services to all Vermont’s veterans. Since the first tournament in 2012, the Committee has raised over $240,000 with 100 percent of our sponsor donations being distributed to organizations serving Vermont’s Veterans.
Among the organizations receiving the donations include The Vermont Veterans Home, Bennington County Meals on Wheels, The Dodge House, Veterans Outreach and Family Resource Center, Purple Hearts Reunited, and Habitat for Humanity as funds to assist a veteran with the ability to purchase a
home. In 2017, the tournament donated a total of $23,600 to assist these organizations. These donations have allowed the organizations to provide more services to our veterans.
We have seen that veterans return to civilian life with a number of challenges, among those medical and psychological needs, including drug and alcohol rehab. Others need food and nutritional support, to re-connect with family members, and assistance with referrals for other services. Transportation, preparation of applications and resumes, and job placement are primary needs. Veterans also make up nearly 9 percent of our homeless population nationwide.
To donate, go to www.vtww.org, and click on the ‘Donate’ tab, print out the application and send it in to help support Vermont’s veterans.
If you would like to enter a team into the tournament, click on the ‘Register’ tab, print out the application and send it in, entry fee is for three golfers and sponsoring a veteran as the fourth golfer. We will pair a veteran with each team.
The tournament will begin at 11 a.m. with lunch and opening ceremonies followed by a day of golf. After the golf, there is a banquet to honor our guests. Each golfer will receive a commemorative golf shirt, hat, and challenge coin.
