On July 18, 2016, the Montgomery County Chamber Community Foundation (MCCCF) hosted the 2016 VIP Foundation Golf Tournament at Lakewood Country Club in Rockville, MD. The fundraising golf tournament supports the Veteran Institute for Procurement (VIP).
Barbara Ashe, President of the Foundation, thanked event sponsors, committee members, and participants for their generous support of VIP, which is essential to the success of the VIP program.
The 103 golfers enjoyed a day of golf and networking in support of VIP. After a full day on the Rees Jones designed golf course, golfers enjoyed cocktails, dinner, networking, congratulated the raffle, contest and tournament winners, and watched the helicopter ball drop on the 18th green.
