Golf Tournament to Benefit Cherokee Veterans Center
An upcoming golf tournament held by the Cherokee Nation on October 3 dubbed “The Four Bs—Birdies, Bogeys, Buildings and Business,” will help raise funding for a project to benefit area veterans.
Hosted by the Cherokee Hills Golf Club in Catoosa, Oklahoma, the tournament offers entrants an opportunity to network and discuss the planned Cherokee Nation Veterans Center in Tahlequah. All the proceeds will go towards the completion of the center.
The tournament is in a shotgun format beginning at 8:30 a.m. and teams must register by September 29. Team fee is $400 and includes a hole/tee sponsorship sign, golf carts, green fees and lunch.
The center will be at the tribe’s main office complex and the construction phases have begun.
“This project means so much to so many people. The important services offered at the veterans center will not only be for Cherokee Nation citizens but for all veterans residing in eastern Oklahoma,” said Dana Espinal, director of planning and development for the Cherokee Nation Management Resource Group.
