(WBRE/WYOU-TV) Golfers from across central Pennsylvania teed off for a good cause Friday afternoon in Northumberland County.
Wynding Brook Golf Club in Milton hosted its annual Folds of Honor Golf Tournament.
The money raised will go to “Folds of Honor”, a non-profit set up to help families of American Veterans killed or wounded in service to their country.
Each year the organization provides scholarships worth more than 20 million dollars to the children and spouses of military veterans.
Dozens of golfers took to the links and tried to keep the ball in the fairway for the good cause.
Organizers say the program grows each year and its impact extends far beyond the immediate needs of military families.
“It’s way more. Everything that we do is all about education. So we provide scholarships to the children and the spouses of these American Heroes families,” Said Tony Biata, Vice President, Folds of Honor.
“I think they are extremely important. Because without us, those families would not have some of the things they get. And honestly without those families and their loved ones who have made the ultimate sacrifice, we may not have the freedoms that we have now,” Noted Chad Anthony, Golf Tournament Director.
This is the fourth year for the tournament at Wynding Brook Golf Club.
This year, organizers expect to raise close to $15,000 for Folds of Honor thanks to sponsorships of local businesses in and around Milton.
