2023 USO Golf Outing
Arora Engineers (Arora) and Liberty USO are pleased to announce the 15th annual 2023 USO Golf Outing. Register now to join us for this great event, benefiting the USO of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The USO serves as a vital lifeline for our military personnel, providing programs and services to support their well-being, boost morale, and offer a taste of home. From offering a comforting space at the airport to facilitating travel arrangements, organizing events, and connecting loved ones, the USO is there for our troops every step of the way.
Over the last five years, we have generated over $600,000 thanks to your participation in this annual fundraiser! This year’s outing will take place at Hartefeld National Country Club, who has previously hosted The Bell Atlantic Classic on the Senior (now Champions) PGA Tour. This is a great championship course you do not want to miss. Join us for another unforgettable day on the greens!
