Charity golf outing raises thousands for veterans to go on Honor Flights

WAUSAU (WAOW) -

More than 100 golfers teed off at the Greenwood Hills Country Club to raise money to send veterans on the trip of a lifetime.

The 6th annual Charity Golf Outing benefited the Never Forgotten Honor Flight, which flies Wisconsin's veterans to Washington, D.C. to tour war memorials.

The event was sponsored by Nicolet National Bank and the Greenwood Hills Country Club.

To sponsor one veteran on the flight costs $500.

"Almost everybody knows a veteran, or is related to a veteran, and we're so appreciative for their service so we want to thank them in our own way," JoAnn Draeger with Nicolet National Bank said.

The event included 18 holes of golf, as well as live and silent auctions.

Organizers said they expect to raise up to $25,000.
