The Heroes Open is a fundraising golf tournament in support of the California Central Coast Veterans Cemetery.
Funds go to support continued construction and operations of the cemetery through the California Central Coast Cemetery Foundation. The event is conducted by the United Veterans Council of Monterey County which is a not for profit organization registered with the IRS providing tax deduction for donors.
On September 30 we received the news that the US Department of Veterans Affairs has paid to the California Department of Veterans Affairs the amount of $6.8 million to cover the costs of construction for the first phase of the California Central Coast Veterans Cemetery on the former Ft. Ord. This is a giant step forward and will go a long way toward relieving demand for the inurnment of remains in the 5000 niche columbarium to be constructed in this phase.
We must remember that this is only Phase 1. We still need to complete the cemetery to provide in ground sites for both caskets and urns. That will require further local money in order to get the US Department of Veterans Affairs to provide the necessary funding. Beyond that there are plans for a chapel, an amphitheater, and a museum which must be funded entirely from local money. That is what the Heroes Open is all about.
We do not want a partial cemetery. We want, need and deserve the finished product. If you have already supported us, THANK YOU! If you have not yet done your part please step up now and make the dream a reality.
