Operation Thank You Golfs For Veterans & Soldiers

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.- People got together in Pasco today to raise money for an important organization that supports troops overseas.

Operation Thank You held their annual golf tournament at Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco. All of the funds raised from entries, raffles and donations went to the non-profit group, which honors American soldiers and veterans. One woman who volunteers with the group lost her son Marvin when he was killed in action in Iraq.

"Marvin would be just so overwhelmed with happiness to see that we have real patriots here in America," said Charlotte Best.

Organizers tell us this year's tournament was the biggest they've ever had and they hope the event gets even more popular every year.
