Oceanside Chamber Raises over $4,000 for Local Veterans
On June 5th, the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce held its 12th Annual Golf with a Hero event at Marine Memorial Golf Course on Camp Pendleton. The event has provided an annual opportunity for business and community leaders to treat a local hero to a day on the golf course.
In addition to providing a fun day for the active duty military participants, the event has helped raise funds for several local military charities over the years.
This year, the event raised $4,250 for the Veterans Association of North County (VANC). VANC is an association of more than 30 different veteran organizations serving over 5,000 members. For the first time in the history of North San Diego County, VANC is establishing a new facility for all veterans and their families — the Veterans Association of North County Resource Center in Oceanside.
“The Oceanside Chamber and the business community are proud of our military and our veterans,” said Chamber CEO, David Nydegger. “Our annual Golf with a Hero event is one way for us to say thank you.”
