Local News

GRIARD, Ohio (WKBN) – Golf, good times and helping local veterans: It’s all coming together Friday for the Veterans’ Outreach 6th Annual Golf Scramble.

It’s happening at the Mahoning Country Club in Girard.

First though, there was a check presentation.

An $8,500 donation came from the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association Poker Run which happened last month.

There’s also time to look over a basket raffle Friday. At the same time more than 100 golfers are hitting the links.

“We are a motorcycle club of combat veterans that ride motorcycles as a hobby. Then again, we ride together and raise money for charities,” said Steve Vickers, CVMA Commander.

Vickers says all the money they raise stays in Ohio to help local veterans.

Veterans’ Outreach helps out vets with issues like housing, utilities and other services. Organizers say they help cut out the red tape to get help for veterans.
