On November 4th 2004, Jeremiah Baro and Jared Hubbard were killed in action in Iraq. On the first anniversary of the day in which the two great friends made the ultimate sacrifice in fulfiling their commitment to our great nation, a group of close friends struggled to conceive a way to both honor and remember them. Although neither Baro or Hubbard were golfers, a golf tournament was deemed to be a fitting atmosphere for the friends of the fallen to congregate and celebrate their lives.
The first year was small and casual consisting of 20 participants, the most important of which was Jared Hubbard's father, Jeff. After the round, there was talk of expanding the tournament and perhaps even raising some money for a scholarship fund that had already been set up in the name of Baro and Hubbard and Buchanan High School. Over the last few years the tournament has expanded its scope; donating $11,000 in 2007, $30,000 in 2008, $46,000 in 2009, $23,000 in 2010 and $20,000 in 2011 to the Fresno Veteran's Affairs Hospital.
This year's event will return to Fort Washington Golf and Country Club in Fresno, on Tuesday, November 11th! We will be looking to donate even more funds in the honor of Jared, Jeremiah, and every other veteran who has ever served our country.
