On April 20th, 2019 sixty four golfers gathered for the 2nd Annual AMVETS Post 94 Benefit Golf Tournament at Perryville Country Club. Prior to this event AMVETS representative, and United States Marine Corps Veteran, Cody Statler had reached out to the Kniestedt Foundation to notify them that twenty full members of the AMVETS had voted the foundation as a worthy recipient of the funds to be raised at this year’s golf tournament. Together the AMVETS, many businesses local to the Perryville area and the golfers raised a total of $3,000.00 to be be gifted to the Kniestedt Foundation.
The AMVETS presented the funds raised to Kniestedt Foundation Project Manager Joe Rhodes during their April 23rd meeting. At the meeting AMVETS members had the opportunity to speak with Rhodes further about the events offered by the Kniestedt Foundation. Additionally, Rhodes took the opportunity to notify them what their funds would be used for, a 2019 backcountry elk hunt for an Army and Navy Veteran in Dubois, Wyoming.
It has been announced that the Kniestedt Foundation will also be the recipient of the AMVETS 3rd Annual Benefit Golf Tournament on April 25, 2020.
