Getting on the Green for A Great Cause

DECATUR- Getting on the green for those who have helped save the Red, White and Blue.

All weekend long golfers had the opportunity to head out to all 5 of the courses in Decatur to help raise awareness and money for those who have sacrificed so much.

The first ever “Support our Heroes” golf outing donated $25 from every game played to the Wounded Warrior Project.

Mike Brewer, a Veteran said, “These people go out and they've given everything they can and come back wounded and I think we could do all that we can for them. I came back with all my parts I feel like I should do something for them.”

The tournament runs until Monday and at the end a few grand prizes will be awarded including, a set of golf clubs.

Park District Golf Manager Kurt Rogers said, “It's a win-win for everybody involved.”
