OUR ANNUAL EVENTS

Beyond our financial contributions we help our veterans through a variety of annual events designed to create a sense of community and show our support for our veterans and their families.

Golf Tournament

Why Golf? Golf is one of the most social games there is. They say if you want to get to know a person’s character spend 5 hours on the golf course with them. At WHOA we understand the need to build bridges between our community and our veterans. We have found no better way that for them to spend an entire day together. Is one of the most challenging games there is. Our vets are young and love a challenge.Most people have very little contact or know anyone that has served or been in combat, almost all our veteran have been wounded or injured as a result of their service.  Spending a day on the golf course gives our friends in the civilian world an opportunity to get to know our vets and say thank you for your service-   A small gestures that means everything to our vets- recognition of their sacrifice. It’s a terrific way to raise much needed funding. It’s an entire day with the vets.

The sponsors and contributors will have the satisfaction of making this there event and participating in some amazing tournaments benefiting some amazing young people.

And at the end of the day, It’s a tradition that we carry on since our first Golf tournament in Nov 29th 2001 -whose proceeds were donated to the surviving spouse of Michael Mac Donnell a young husband and father killed that horrible day. I’m her letter to us she said “After what you and your group have done it has made me realize that all humanity is not lost “

It’s a award ceremony, sit down dinner with a your foursome that may include a combat Wounded Veteran

Join us on the course for a special day with our Combat Wounded Veterans.
