FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The 5th Annual Mulligans for the Military golf outing took place at Chestnut Hills Golf Course Saturday.
Money raised from the event will benefit the Military Families Program of Associated Churches.
The program works with the 122nd Air National Guard, 293rd Infantry Regiment, 384th Military Police Battalion, and the Fort Wayne VA.
After golf, an awards ceremony and dinner were held.
The Military Families Program started with a mission to assist families with loved ones deployed overseas. Recently, the scope of the program has increased to also work with chaplains, family assistance specialists, case managers, employment coordinators, and vocational rehabilitation managers.
“As increasing numbers of men and women return home from active duty, there are a wide variety of ways we can help them with the transition,” said Roger Reece, Executive Pastor of Associated Churches, in a statement. “However, for us to help with job placement, emergency housing, and advocacy in general, we need many hands and hearts and dollars to make it work. Attending the Mulligans for the Military Golf Outing is an easy and fun way for people to help those who have served our country and community,”
