McCallie held its annual charity golf tournament on August 25, 2017, at Tregaron Golf Course, in Bellevue, NE. We are delighted to report that the tournament continues to be a great success! The 36-team event was filled three weeks after the tournament was announced and we received positive feedback from our faithful sponsors and loyal players alike. This year’s $12,500 total brings our ten-year donation total to $75,000. All proceeds from the 10th annual tournament were donated to the UNO Office of Military and Veteran Services (OMVS) to fund scholarships supporting active duty and veteran service members and their families. The UNO OMVS is a one-stop education advocate that is committed to successful recruitment, transition, academic progress, and graduation at UNO. This organization ensures the Veteran students have the necessary resources critical to their academic success. At this year’s event, we were fortunate to have from UNO, Leah Meyer, the Director of the Office of Military and Veteran Services, along with Nicole Massara, the UNO Director of Development. They both spoke of the impact UNO OMVS has made on the Veteran students. In addition, Ms. Meyer provided several letters of appreciation from Veteran students impacted by the donations of our McCallie Golf Tournament sponsors and players.
McCallie wishes to extend a heartfelt thanks to all of our sponsors, donors, players, and volunteers that help make this such a successful event year after year!
