Veterans Memorial Foundation hosts annual golf tournament to benefit education programs

(Aug. 11, 2023) The Worcester County Veterans Memorial Foundation announced the 16th annual Veterans Memorial Tournament, Wednesday, Sept. 20 at the Ocean Pines Golf Club.
The event will benefit education programs of the Memorial Foundation that include annual tours of the memorial grounds by all fifth-grade students in Worcester County. 
The annual tours are part of a collaboration between the Worcester County Board of Education and the Worcester County Veterans Memorial Foundation. Tours are led by dedicated volunteer docents who share their knowledge of veterans' sacrifices, the history of different service branches, and flag etiquette.
Complementing these sessions, JROTC cadets from Stephen Decatur High School, Snow Hill High School, and Pocomoke High School provide hands-on guidance in proper flag handling and folding, helping to foster intergenerational connections and respect for the nation's heritage.
All students also receive an activity guide to reinforce those lessons and encourage ongoing conversations about their family's contributions and military service history. 
The annual golf tournament is the major fundraiser for Memorial Foundation education programs. 
The tournament will feature a scramble best ball format with a 9 a.m. shotgun start.
Registration is $125 per player and includes tournament entry, golf cart, lunch, and access to tournament prizes. 
Sponsorship opportunities are available at various levels, ranging from $100 to $2,000, with each offering distinct benefits.
