Proceeds from 5th Annual John Viercinski Memorial Golf Tournament Benefit Veterans' Charity
September 17, 2012
Organizers of the 5th Annual John Viercinski Memorial Golf Tournament recently presented the Disabled American Veterans Department of Pennsylvania with a check for $11,000 to aid in their mission to build better lives for America’s disabled veterans and their families.
John Viercinski was the Director of Pharmacy at Wyoming Valley Health Care System and a Lieutenant Colonel in the US Army. Mr. Viercinski was also a veteran of the Persian Gulf War and Commander of the 348th General Hospital (HUM). He passed away in 2008 after a lengthy battle with cancer.
Held at Edgewood in the Pines golf club, Drums, the John Viercinski Memorial Golf Tournament is an annual event that honors Vercinski’s memory and re-affirms his commitment to the community. Proceeds from last year’s tournament benefited the Care and Concern Free Health Clinic, Pittston.
