The 2nd Battalion, 25th Marines Association will host its 3rd Annual Golf Outing at Eisenhower Park Aug. 3 to raise funds for the support of local Marine Reservists and their families.
Play will take place on the Red and White Courses with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Check in begins at 10 a.m., followed by a barbecue lunch. Play will be followed by a buffet dinner at the Carltun.
Proceeds will help the nonprofit organization provide comfort and support to family members of deployed Marines; care packages for those on the frontlines of the War on Terror; and if need be, funds will be used to assist wounded Marines or provide for the survivors of any killed in the line of duty.
The 2nd Battalion, 25th Marines Association was founded to bring together the knowledge and experiences of Marines, past and present, to benefit the Marines and family members of 2nd Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment, a reserve infantry unit based in Garden City.
There are several openings available for foursomes. To register for the event, or learn how you can help, visit the 2nd Battalion, 25th Marines Association online at www.225marines.org. Sponsorship opportunities are still available and donations of merchandise for raffles will be greatly appreciated. Call (718) 309-3986 for more information.
