Steve Hoehn, TCC mobility management director, says TCC and Shore Transit have been working to help veterans since 2013.
“Shore Transit offers free rides for veterans on its fixed routes since 2013 and we do offer some rides for veterans who need it for the smaller buses as well,” Hoehn said.
According to Hoehn, TCC is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization and the group is able to fund its efforts from various sources.
“We wanted to do something for the veterans and we thought a golf tournament would be the best way to do it! It’s always a continuous campaign to keep this going.”
The April 8 golf tournament registration begins at 8 a.m. and tee-off is at 9 a.m. The tournament is $100 per player and includes entry, 18 holes of golf, riding cart, lunch and an awards presentation at the Club House afterwards.
Bob Beckleman, PGA Head Pro at River Run, says the collaboration between the two organizations made sense.
“The tournament certainly fit our philosophies, or what have you here. We talked about it and we were very willing to help them and it worked out well,” Beckleman says.
Hoehn says the organization selected River Run because of its desirable location and signature golf course. Hoehn thought, what better way to raise money than by playing golf?
“The businesses around here really want to support the veterans and and they do in a lot of ways,” Hoehn said. “People really love to play golf and they can put the money towards a good cause.”
