MEMORIAL GOLF TOURNAMENT
We are happy to announce that the fourth annual Peter Kraines Memorial Golf Tournament will be held at the Country Club of Whispering Pines on 08 October 2023 at 9:30 a.m. If you have donated in the past, or had the privilege of playing in the tournament, thank you! We have been able to raise over $60k for Peter’s wife and two children from the previous three tournaments. The memorial tournament allows us to show Peter’s family that they are loved, and still a part of this community.
During the previous tournaments all of the proceeds went directly to Peter’s wife and children. Moving forward, Emily Kraines has requested that the proceeds benefit other gold star families in addition to her family. She has assisted the Pararescue Foundation in creating the Gold Star Family Education Program (GSFEP). This non-profit supports children of fallen Pararescueman. The proceeds from this year and on will now be placed in that fund. Emily and Peter’s two children will still benefit from this fund, but it does not stop at just their family. What an incredible testimony to the Kraines family and their continued generosity towards others!
We would like to invite you to participate again this year. There are multiple avenues to support this event, including hole sponsorships, prize donations for the raffle, volunteer positions, and playing in the tournament. We have teamed up this year with the non-profit, The Association. All monetary donations can be sent directly to them via check or Venmo. If you would like to support this tournament, please email KrainesMGT@gmail.com with your information and donation amount. Once the tournament is complete, The Association will write a check to The Pararescue Foundation’s Gold Star Family Education Program. Please reach out at any time with questions you might have. Thank you for making this tournament possible!
