Golf Outing 2017 Press Release

VETERANS FREEDOM PARK 5TH ANNUAL GOLF OUTING

The Veterans Freedom Park held its fifth annual golf outing-fundraiser on June 3, 2017 at the Tamaracks Golf Course. This was our last fundraising event of the year. The weather was perfect for those that came out to show their support. We brought in over $9,000 for the event! We would like to extend a huge thanks to Mike & Megan (Morris) Hawkins and the entire Tamaracks Staff, for hosting another successful outing. None of this would be possible without those that took time out their Saturday to donate, golf with us and to show their support for the Veterans Freedom Park. We had a tie breaker for the First/Second place!

Congratulations to the top three teams:

  1. Dan Ross Team
  2. Andrew Kreger Team
  3. Jeff Arsenault Team

The specialty hole winners go to:

Men’s Closet to the pin winner: Josh Farrell
Ladies Closet to the pin: Peg Stevens
Men’s Longest drive: Ben Pischer
Ladies Longest Drive: Patty Szotko.

We appreciate everyone who participated to make this another successful golf outing!
