"Westfield is where Margaret considered her home town to be," said Redeemer Lutheran member Darren Sager. "It would be wonderful to see her hometown and the surrounding areas come together and support her family now that she's given her life in service to her country."
Sager stressed that 100 percent of the net proceeds will benefit Anderson's family. The goal for 2012 outing is $30,000. Registration begins at 8:30 am with an awards luncheon starting at 2:30 pm. Contests include: “Beat the Bishop,” Hole-in-One, Closest to the Pin (2), Men’s and Ladies’ Longest Drives and Closest to the Line.
