Registration will close Sept. 19 for the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans' 12th annual Golf Outing and Texas BBQ Fundraiser.
The event, which takes place Sept. 29 at Bloomingdale Golf Club, features 18 holes of golf in a team scramble format, beginning at 9 a.m. with a shotgun start. A complete Texas barbecue dinner follows golf at 2:30 p.m.
Golfers can register online at helpaveteran.org at discounted rates of $540 per foursome or $140 per individual golfer, which includes golf and dinner. A limited number of dinner-only reservations are available for $50. The cost for mail-in registration is $550 per foursome or $150 per individual golfer.
A limited number of sponsorship opportunities, ranging from $150 to $5,000, are still available. Information is available on the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans' website. Potential sponsors also may contact Lynne Rowe at 630-871-VETS (8387), ext. 613, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since the inaugural event in 2006, the golf outing has raised more than $280,000 in support of the Wheaton-based organization's mission to help homeless and at-risk veterans regain self-sufficiency.
