Events Details:

Veteran’s Honor Flight of Southern Illinois, along with its sponsoring partners, is proud to present the First Annual Veteran’s Honor Flight of Southern Illinois Golf Scramble Fundraiser.  The goal of this event is to eventually raise enough money to cover the cost of one Honor Flight – over $90,000.  100% of all donations collected will go directly to Veteran’s Honor Flight of Southern Illinois, a 501 (c) (3) organization.  Following golf, Nancy Brown, Vice-Admiral U.S. Navy (Ret), will briefly share the story of Honor Flight.  Players will also hear from a special guest veteran who has participated in a recent flight.
