York golf tournament raises money to help local veterans


YORK, Pa. (WHTM) — Regardless of who plays the best round, local veterans will be the winners of this golf tournament in York.

The YorkVet Golf Invitational happened Thursday at the Heritage Hills Golf Resort. It’s sponsored by an organization called York County Veterans Outreach, which helps veterans with issues ranging from food insecurity to PTSD.

Events ranged from a team competition, a shootout and hole-in-one contests.

“If you’re a veteran who’s struggling, there’s a service or program who will help you wherever you’re at,” York County Veterans Outreach President Kevin Eck said. “So whatever the need is, there’s something in York County that will be able to assist them.”
