KEARNEY — A charity golf tournament earlier this month raised more than $18,000 for the memorial at the Central Nebraska Veterans’ Home at Kearney.

The 32-team, four-person scramble kicked off the fundraising campaign for the memorial, which will be at the entrance to the vets home. Bids still are being accepted to construct the project, and organizers are hoping to raise between $1.5 million and $2 million.

To donate to the memorial, contact the Kearney Area Community Foundation at 237-3114.
