The White Pine War Memorial Foundation will hold its fifth Annual Golf Tournament on Friday, July 4th, at the White Pine County Golf Course. Sign-ups will start at 8 a.m. followed by a 9 a.m. Shotgun.
The entry fee is $50 plus cart and green fees and includes a steak dinner afterwards sponsored by Midway Gold.
“There will be special Veteran’s challenges this year, including the Wounded Warriors Par Three Challenge, The Disabled Vet’s Putting Challenge, and the Active Duty Vet’s Long Drive Challenge,” according to Dave Huckaby, Secretary of the Foundation.
To date, the organization has honored all 123 soldiers from White Pine who have died in action while serving our country. Memorials are on display at the White Pine High School with the exception of the WWI-Spanish American War memorial which will be dedicated on Veterans Day this November. Funds raised this year will help all Veterans causes, including scholarships, health issues and services for disabled veterans.
“Veterans with needs should contact our group for assistance,” stated Huckaby.
Board members include Dan Maestes, Mike Lemich, Brent Rose, John O’Fharety, Scott Hase, Henry Blair, Terry Gust, Dennis Caviglia, Dave Huckaby, Bob Nichols, and Dick Munson.
All Veterans are invited for the steak fry at 2 p.m., compliments of Midway Gold!
