Scholarships offered to NM military families by Folds of Honor

Military family members who have lost a loved one or have an injured veteran they’re taking care of can take advantage of scholarship funds thanks to Folds of Honor. For the past six years, Pat and Jim Quick have been running this a non-profit charity by providing scholarship money to military families, that have lost a family member or had one disabled while serving America.

Pat Quick says the non-profit group started some 12 years ago and the fundraising has been ongoing for 10 years. Many families are trying to put their lives back together after a devasting loss. This is where the Folds of Honor offers help by providing the scholarship funds necessary to ensure family members can get the education they need, from grade school through college.

You can join in the fun by playing golf to raise the needed funds. Enjoy the Red White and Blue Dinner at Tanoan Country Club on September 23, and the Patriot Shootout golf tournament with the Lobo Golf Teams on the same day. Golfers and guests for dinner plus dinner guests can register at Foldsofhonornewmexico.org
