WARREN, Vt. – Did you know that last week 60 members of our Vermont National Guard deployed for the Middle East for one year? It is for missions such as this that we are asking you to support the 15th annual Charity Golf Tournament to benefit the Vermont National Guard Charitable Foundation. After 15 years, we have decided that this will be our last golf tournament. We are pleased to report that over the last 14 years we have raised $195,000 for our Vermont troops and families. So do not miss out and help us celebrate 15 years by playing in our tournament at Sugarbush Golf Club this Sept. 16, 2018.
We are in need of prizes for our raffle and auction. Please consider donating to this worthy cause. The highlight of our tournament is the buffet dinner served at the Rumble’s Kitchen at Sugarbush Resort! In addition to dinner we award team prizes, raffle items, and silent auction.
As the men and women of the Vermont National Guard and Vermonters serving in all branches of our armed forces continue to answer the call to duty, they face untold financial hardships as they cope with the difficulties of being separated from their loved ones. We see that some Vermont National Guard families are struggling financially to meet their basic living needs. Some of these men and women have paid the highest price in service for our country, others have been injured, and their families need our help and support. Many of the families need help to make ends meet as their loved ones are away for extended tours of duty.
This is a nonprofit fund with no paid staff, and we are doing this on our own time as a personal endeavor to help our fellow Vermonters serving our country. One hundred percent of the money raised goes directly to those service members and their families who are serving overseas in the military.
