The Walk of Heroes Veterans – War Memorial is an important and highly valued Georgia memorial. Not only does the Walk of Heroes honor veterans from the Georgia area, it is also designed to honor veterans from all over the country.
This unique memorial has been appreciated by residents and visitors alike as a visual reminder to the sacrifices made by veterans for the freedom we have today. That’s why it was particularly disheartening when, earlier this year, the Walk of Heroes memorial was vandalized. The damages were estimated to cost $200,000 in repairs.
Many members of the community were adamant about supporting the restoration of the memorial. Ginn Chevrolet felt equally invested in contributing to the memorial’s recovery from this disrespectful act. To do our part in raising funds, we worked as a sponsor of the Cherokee Run Golf Club Golf Tournament that served to raise funds for the restoration of the Walk of Heroes – Veterans War Memorial.
The tournament took place on March 16, 2018. The cost for entry was $100 per person, which included a lunch, the cost of cart and green fares, and prizes. We are happy that we were able to sponsor such an event, and look forward to hearing how much this tournament was able to raise for the benefit of the memorial.
