2020 Fundraiser & Golf Tournament Sponsorship

Join us for 21st Annual!

63 years – 3 Programs — 1 Fundraiser

As the Vessey Chapter of the Association of the United States Army, we are honored to support our military service members and their families during the entire year through our programming.  This year marks our 21st Annual Golf Tournament in support of Vessey Chapter programs.

  1. Toys 4 Military Kids reaches all branches of the Military, this program provided toys to 60 military units (3,100 children of the military!) and 238 individual Military Families in five states. Capitalizing on Vessey Chapter ROTC leadership a new website for families in need over the holidays was created. ROTC cadets and chapter volunteers delivered toys to families in need, while program chair-persons, Mike and Sandi Clark, handled the bulk of the operation out of their home.
  2. Annual Polytrauma Holiday Party hosts patients on the Polytrauma Ward of the VA Hospital. Veterans and Service Members along with their families and staff enjoyed a Holiday party complete with gifts, Santa treats, music and dancing. The average patient stays in the unit 3-6 months, so transitioning out can be a challenge. In addition we support these warriors throughout the year by giving $5,000 annually to finance opportunities for the patients to reintegrate off campus where hospital resources are not available.
  3. Troops for Tomorrow: J/ROTC Leadership, Scholarship and Running Events: Supporting the high school and college youth with awards, scholarships and opportunities in leadership and travel. The Vessey Chapter supports teams to Bataan Memorial Death March, Army Ten Miler and this year has joined with Get in Gear to help create the largest military 5K in the country.

These programs and opportunities for the military community are made possible through the generous contributions of our community and AUSA members. All money raised directly benefits the armed forces service members, J/ROTC cadets and their families.

Registration open on Eventbrite.
