Help Our Local Veterans in Need

Ed Davis

Award-winning American Legion Oro Valley Post 132 is sponsoring its 11th annual charity golf tournament on Saturday, September 19, at The Views GC in Sun City, Oro Valley. One hundred percent of the proceeds are to provide care and assistance to local homeless and “at risk” veterans and to the families of the deployed soldiers of our adopted Arizona National Guard and Reserve Units (our citizen soldiers). The tournament has been redesigned to comply with CDC and local COVID-19 guidelines. The traditional check-in and paper form of scoring have been eliminated and other modifications which emphasize a contactless experience and social distancing have been implemented. A dual-hole start (all golfers tee off on either hole 1 or hole 10) with staggered tee times beginning at 7 a.m. and restricted to the first 72 golfers will ensure an enjoyable experience.

“No other organization has done more for our local veterans in need. Thank you to the members of the Oro Valley Post 132.” These words were spoken by the chairman of the Tucson Veterans Serving Veterans Alliance.
