Final numbers are in, and the second annual Local 49 Golf Classic to Benefit Homes For Our Troops in July raised even more money than last year.
A nationally recognized nonprofit, Homes For Our Troops builds and donates specially adapted custom homes to severely injured post-9/11 veterans.
Measured by dollars raised, our inaugural golf classic in 2022 was the largest single fundraiser for Homes For Our Troops nationwide last year. Thanks to our generous sponsors, our total went up more than $50,000 this year – we raised $357,215. Every penny went to Homes For Our Troops.
The golf classic took place at Midland Hills Country Club in Roseville, Minnesota, and included a heartfelt address from Army SPC Marco Solt, a Minnesota veteran who received one of the homes built by the organization in the past.
