Golf outing to benefit Wounded Warrior Project, Purdue and Ivy Tech student veterans organizations

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The Purdue Student Veterans Organization will host an Aug. 25 golf scramble with part of the funds raised going to the Wounded Warrior Project, a national nonprofit that serves military service members who incurred service-connected wounds, injuries, or illnesses, and their families.

The student veteran organization from Ivy Tech is supporting the Purdue student group's effort for the event, which begins at 8 a.m. at Ackerman Hills course at the Boilermaker Golf Complex. Proceeds from the event also will go to the student veterans organization.

The cost to participate in the scramble is $60 a person or $240 per foursome. Anyone interested in golfing, or sponsoring any portion of the event or providing funds for a Purdue or Ivy Tech student veteran to golf, can go to http://www.conf.purdue.edu/veteransgolf
