Pro Bowler Hosts Golf Tour­ney For Wounded

MidWeek Islander (Windward Oahu) - - Windward Oahu Sports -

The Pro Bowl may have been Jan. 26, but Jared Allen, a de­fen­sive end for the Min­nesota Vik­ings and a five-time Pro Bowl pick, hopes to chan­nel re­main­ing foot­ball fever into, of all things, a golf tour­na­ment.

Allen will host the in­au­gu­ral Help­ing He­roes Hawaii Golf & Gala at Turtle Bay Re­sort Feb. 20-22 to raise funds for his non­profit Homes for Wounded War­riors, which seeks to pro­vide hand­i­cap-ac­ces­si­ble homes for wounded vet­er­ans. Pro­ceeds from this event will likely sup­port Hawai­ibased vet­er­ans in need.

The fundraiser in­cludes ac­tiv­i­ties over three days, such as spa treat­ments, hik­ing, cock­tail re­cep­tions and a four­some golf tour­na­ment. Lo­cal cou­ples can ex­pect to pay $4,000 for the three­day pack­age (sin­gles pay $2,000). A la carte tick­ets for the gala or golf tour­ney also can be pur­chased for $750 ($375 with mil­i­tary ID). For de­tails, visit help­ingheroe­
