How it all began...
Retired school teacher and very active volunteer, Nancy Butler, parlayed her love of golf into establishing the Thank A Veteran Golf Event several years ago to show her appreciation and give back to the many men and women who have served in the armed forces.
"They sacrifice so much for us. If I can give them one day to give thanks, then I feel like I've done something," she says enthusiastically.
Veterans play for free (or make a voluntary donation), while others pay a very reasonable set fee. Still other individuals and local business donate goods and services for silent auction and raffle items to raise money for various veteran-based organizations.
Veterans are treated to a boxed lunch while on the course and a catered dinner when play is complete. The event is capped off with prizes awarded to winning teams and sponsor recognition ending with the silent auction and raffle.
