East Valley Marines, Detachment 1296, is sponsoring their fourth annual golf tournament to benefit our Arizona service members. The tournament is on April 7 at the Oakwood Country Club. It is a four-person scramble with a shotgun start at 8:00 a.m. You will also get a chance to mingle with several of the sponsored disabled veterans who are golfing at the event.
There are several novel events on this morning, including the opportunity to tee off at one hole by shooting your golf ball from a launcher. There will also be hole-in-one competitions.
All net proceeds support the “Marines Helping Marines” program and the U.S. Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment West, providing assistance to our Arizona Marine Heroes in the form of transportation, shelter, food, power chairs, financial aid and other help as needed.
You can join in the fun of golfing, or you could consider a sponsorship. There are raffle prizes, and a lunch is included. To see how you can participate, visit the website at www.eastvalleymarines.org for a registration form.
