Miramar Marines tee off for annual fundraiser Sgt. Melissa Wenger

Capt. Matt Langferman, a golf tournament participant and a Milan, Ind., native, takes a swing during the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar Officer’s Wives Club’s 10th Annual Charity Golf Tournament April 26. This year, the tournament is the sole fundraiser for the OWC scholarship, which helps recipients from the Miramar community pay for higher education.

MARINE CORPS AIR STATION MIRAMAR, Calif. – The Marine Corps Air Station Miramar Officer’s Wives Club held its 10th Annual Charity Golf Tournament aboard the MCAS Miramar golf course April 26. According to Kallie Pitcock, OWC president and a Graham, Texas, native, the golf tournament is this year’s sole fundraising event for the OWC scholarship award.

The scholarship is available to any MCAS Miramar dependent or former Miramar dependent for use toward a four-year college, certificate, trade school, or licensure.

“We’re helping our Marines, helping our families and we’re fundraising at our own base, so it means a lot more to see people handing them cash to get their education,” said Pitcock.

Applicants submit an essay and resume to an OCW team to be scored by a standard graded rubric. The number and amounts of the awards depend on how much money is raised. The tournament raised funds through entry fees, opportunity drawings and local corporate sponsors.
