VALPARAISO | The Folds of Honor is a national non-profit organization dedicated to providing primary, secondary and college education scholarships for the children of military service men and women who have been wounded or killed while serving our great nation.
The local chapter of the organization, Folds of Honor of Northwest Indiana, is hosting a golf outing series to fund scholarships for the children of fallen and disabled heroes from Northwest Indiana.
“The Folds of Honor is dedicated to helping the children of those servicemen and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. We invite golfers of all ages and skill levels to help us honor the legacy of our fallen heroes by helping us build the scholarship fund for their children,” said Bob Carnagey, organizer of the Folds of Honor of Northwest Indiana.
The golf outings will take place on Aug. 17 at The Course at Aberdeen in Valparaiso and Aug. 21 at Sandy Pines in DeMotte. Each four-man scramble will include an afternoon shotgun start, raffles, auctions and dinner. The Aberdeen outing will feature a picnic dinner by Suzie’s Café and live music by The String of Pearls Jazz Trio reminiscent of the music played in the USO clubs. The picnic dinner is open to non-golfers at $10 per adult and $5 per school-age child.
Four teams at each outing will advance to compete in a championship playoff at 1 p.m. Sept. 7 at The Course at Aberdeen in Valparaiso. The championship payout will be based upon the number of entrants, but it is anticipated to be on par with the 2013 championship payout which was $2,000.
The proceeds from the Folds of Honor of Northwest Indiana’s Golf Outing Series will directly benefit the children of killed or disabled heroes from Northwest Indiana.
