FLORENCE — Pinal County Veterans Memorial Foundation will host its 10th annual golf tournament May 22 at Poston Butte Golf Club, 6100 W. Merrill Ranch Parkway, in Florence.

Fees for 18 holes, cart and lunch are $100 for singles, $375 for teams or $230 for course members. Garrett Motors is providing a hole-in-one prize. There will be raffles and a 50/50 drawing, and mulligans will be available for purchase. To register or for more information, write to dshomes1@msn.com or call 480-332-6916.

Sponsorship packages range from $1,000 to $24,000. Call for more information. Send in your application so the foundation can advertise the sponsors as well as get your team registered.

The foundation had hoped its main building in Casa Grande would have been done in time for Memorial Day 2021, but 2020 fundraisers were canceled amid the pandemic. However, the 6’2” lifelike bronze statute that will greet everyone before they enter the memorial is done.

Foundation members recently visited with sculptor Ann LaRose in Tucson. We will be proud to have this statute represent the honor of the fallen soldiers who died fighting for our country.
