The city of Elgin is no stranger to using golf for good causes, having formed a partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Elgin in 2013.

This year, the city -- along with Air One Equipment and Police One Equipment -- will host a charity golf outing to benefit injured military veterans. "The Warrior Scramble" will take place on Monday, June 2, at Bowes Creek Country Club in Elgin.

For $150, golfers will get driving range access, a round of golf, lunch and dinner, and be eligible to win a wide selection of raffle prizes. Every dollar raised by this event will go directly to Wounded Warrior Project, a national nonprofit organization that helps soldiers who have been injured in post-9/11 combat.

For the past decade, Wounded Warrior Project has helped tens of thousands of wounded service members and their families successfully return to civilian life. With the mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors, its programs are specifically structured to engage warriors, nurture their minds and bodies, and encourage their economic empowerment. Warrior families and caregivers are provided comfort, care, and education to help support the recovery of their warrior. Learn how you can make a difference at www.woundedwarriorproject.org.

"Elgin is very proud to support such a noble and worthy cause," says Mike Lehman, director of golf. "It's the least we could do to thank our veterans for their incredible sacrifices."
