In late 2006, Chapter 522 lost one of our long-time members to a tragic accident. Dwight Harrah was a Vietnam veteran and an active member of our organization.
Dwight had held officer and director positions within the chapter. He was also the chapter’s website administrator at the time of his death. Dwight was always a willing volunteer for special events and chapter activities. He frequently participated in many of the chapter’s sweat-equity projects that were focused on raising funds for other veterans in need.
Soon after Dwight’s passing, the members of Chapter 522 decided to create a charity golf tournament to honor Dwight Harrah’s military service as well as the personal contributions he made to our organization. We decided to use our own internal resources to plan and execute our first event.
The 1st Dwight Harrah Golf Tournament was held in 2007. We received outstanding support for the event from our members, as well as friends, associates, local businesses, and community sponsors. The proceeds from the golf tournament were used to fund many of the community activities and veteran-first programs supported by Chapter 522
In 2015, we held the 9th Dwight Harrah Golf Tournament. Like the previous eight events, the 2015 tournament was the largest source of funds for our chapter. Additional information regarding last year’s tournament may be found on one of the pages under the “Golf Tournament” navigation button.
The 10th Dwight Harrah Golf Tournament will be held on Sunday, November 19th, 2017 at the Bardmoor Golf Tennis Club, located at 8001 Cumberland Road, Seminole, FL 33777. A separate page has been created under the “Gold Tournament” heading that provides the latest information regarding the “2017 Tournament,” as well as links to 2017 flyers regarding sponsors, golfers, and entry forms. We hope you will consider participation in this event.
