Wayne State University’s Student Veterans Organization (SVO) is hosting its 2nd Annual Golfing for Veterans fundraiser on August 18th to support veteran students at the university.
The group says that an alarming 87 percent of veterans who return to college never graduate. So the organization’s goal is to raise the veteran graduation rate to 100 percent at their Detroit university.
SVO is holding the golfing fundraiser to provide assistance to various non-profits and veteran outreach programs. The funding will go towards services for veterans in college and in the surrounding community including the Student Veteran Resources Center on Wayne State’s campus.
The event includes a putting contest, 50/50 raffle, and longest drive contest to name a few. Hot dogs will be available during the day. A steak dinner will be held at 6 p.m. with a silent auction following.
The golfing event will be held at the Idyl Wyld Golf Course at 35786 Five Mile Rd., Livonia, Mich. 48154. A registration fee of $75 per golfer will include the golfing contests and food. Registration begins at 12 p.m.
Guests may pay by cash, check, or money order. Checks and money orders can be made payable to Wayne State University.
Along with registering, participants may receive golf tips from members of the Wayne State golf team.
