Golfing for Veterans 2015
Drum roll, please! Golfing for Veterans, partnered with Have Clothes, Will Travel, has raised $7,000 for Operation Homefront this year! A big thank you to everyone who came out this weekend and participated! And especially thank you to all the amazing volunteers, everyone who donated items or money for raffles and hole sponsorships, the wonderful employees at Shamrock Heights Golf Course and Chris Jacke for coming out.
However, most importantly, thank you to A.J. and Megan Griesbach who put this wonderful charity golf outing together all by themselves. It takes an incredible amount of time and dedication to do this much planning between just 2 people. To better put this into perspective, usually events like this have at the very least 10 people planning and organizing. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Megan and A.J! It was an absolute honor for Have Clothes, Will Travel to partner with such a worthy cause! (Have Clothes, Will Travel matched the funds raised for this year’s outing.)

This was A.J and Megan’s 3rd year hosting Golfing for Veterans. Every year the funds raised are donated to Operation Homefront. This wonderful charity provides emergency assistance to military families and wounded warriors. They have helped thousands of military families, and continue to do so right in our community.
“For every dollar you give to Operation Homefront, 93 cents is used to directly help military families,” Megan says. “We also like that the money raised is used to help local families.”
I think it’s safe to say this year’s outing was a success! From the beautiful weather to the awesome prizes throughout the day, to all of the funds raised – Golfing for Veterans was a wonderful time for everyone.

If you see a picture of yourself you like, right click it and then click “save as.” You can have it developed, put it as your Facebook profile pic, upload it to Tinder – whatever you want! I uploaded as many photos as I could in the gallery, to give people more photos of themselves to choose from (so, that’s why it may seem like there is more than one of the same photos).
