Schrock Innovations might be closed today, but we are celebrating Independence Day by supporting a fund raiser for children our US service men and women.
The “Golf for the Troops” charity golf tournament is in its third year and has raised more than $25,000 locally in Lincoln to fund scholarships for our troops’ children. Schrock will be contributing a gift card to the list of prizes available to those who participate in the tournament.
My wife was an Air Force Brat, so I have an understanding for some of the stresses that military families go through between multiple moves, long deployments, and time lost.
Our armed forces take on these stresses in a selfless desire to serve, and this event shows our local military members that Lincoln cares about their sacrifice and appreciates it.
The tournament consists of two 18-hole rounds of golf, a silent auction, couple of meals and many prizes. The tournament is scheduled for July 9th at the Wildreness Ridge Golf Course. Contact the golf course for information on how you can enter and be a part of a great cause.
Have a safe and fun July 4th weekend, and thank you to all of the men and women who have served over the years to keep the US a free and safe place for everyone.
