About Our 2020 Outing

 
The 2020 Western PA Wounded Heroes Fund Golf Classic was held September 21. We had 40 golf groups on the course at Allegheny Country Club, and we raised over $100,000 for our military families!
 
Not only did we have excellent weather, two of our golfers had a hole-in-one at the Par 3 8th hole, and they were in back-to-back groups! Both winners donated their prize, a new vehicle donated by Wright Automotive, to a local veteran.
