Merrill Lynch, a Patriot Level Sponsor of the 2021 Salute to Servicewomen Golf Classic, contributed $10,000 to MACV services. This funding supports Veteran women at-risk or experiencing homelessness. Merrill Lynch has acted as the Classic’s Patriot Presenting Sponsor for several years now, and every year we consider ourselves fortunate for this steadfast support. Thanks for your help!
Chaska’s Beyond the Yellow Ribbon chapter is teaming up with MACV to host a golf tournament and silent auction on September 2, 2021, with proceeds benefitting the expansion of housing options for Veterans at-risk or experiencing homelessness in Carver County. Hosted at Deer Run Golf Club, we cannot wait to enjoy the beautiful September weather with our longtime supporters and hit the course! For more details, please watch the short video created to spread the word about this event.
Sometimes our veterans need more than just a “thank you for your service”. That’s why we created the Salute to Servicewomen Golf Classic. This event honors all women veterans AND gives more than just a “thank you” to those who find themselves homeless after leaving military service.
In 2019, this event raised enough money to provide monthly operational costs for two transitional homes and helped veterans move into permanent housing. In 2020, Covid-19 added additional challenges including cancelling our event. In 2021, monies raised will continue to support MACV housing for women veterans and families.
Golden Valley Golf Club hosted their third Tee It Up for the Troops event to benefit MACV on Sunday, September 13. The fundraiser combined an exciting golf event with an inspiring opening ceremony and tribute to our nation and military, then ended the day with a rousing reception and auction to raise more funds for Minnesota Veterans. Special thanks to Pat Reis for this opportunity!
