SUBJ:  7th Annual VA Medical Center’s Welcome Home “Fore” our Veterans Golf Tournament

We are planning a golf tournament at Fox Run Golf Course in Waterford, PA on Sunday,  July 20,  2014 at 9:00 a.m.  Registration/Check-in will be from 8:00 a.m. – 8:45 a.m.

Our plan is to use this event as a fundraiser for the Erie Veterans Affairs Medical Center’s Welcome Home Fund.  The focus of our tournament will be to benefit the Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), or Operation New Dawn (OND) Veterans by providing Welcome Home Veteran Appreciation events held by the medical center.  These appreciation events provide eligibility and medical center services information to all area Veterans.  The OEF/OIF/OND Veterans are provided retreats along with their spouses.  These weekend retreats focus on strengthening of the relationship between the Veteran and their family.  Last year’s event raised ­­­­­­$8,358 for OEF/OIF/OND Welcome Home Fund 1030.

We are again inviting you to become a sponsor in this worthwhile fundraiser.  If you would like to be recognized as a sponsor for this fundraising event, make checks payable to Erie VAMC and mail to VAMC, Attention:  Voluntary Office, 135 East 38th Street, Erie, PA   16504.  Enclosed is a patient wish list for you to review and earmark your sponsorship (donation), if you wish to do so.
