Event Description

This event begins with an inspirational opening ceremony that pays tribute to our nation, the men and women of our military, and our cherished freedoms. The ceremony includes an Honor Guard from the 934th Airlift Wing, a wreath laying by Gold Star mothers, gathering of veterans from all armed conflicts, and singing of God Bless America and our National Anthem by the Lakeville North High School Now and Then singers.

Following the opening ceremony golfers tee off with a shot-gun start for a 18-hole scramble tournament. Lunch will be served on the golf course. Mid-afternoon there will be a brief air show over the course presented by the T-6 Thunders. There are opportunities to buy-in to on-course contests, purchase raffle tickets with prizes awarded during dinner, experience a chair massage, and much more.

Following the tournament, golfers and non-golfers are invited to join us for a cocktail reception and evening dinner program. During the reception you will be entertained by a brass ensemble representing the Lakeville South High School band.

Included, as part of the event, is a silent auction as well as a small LIVE auction held during the evening program.

Honored guests include veterans from all eras, military leaders, celebrities and sponsors.
