The Capt. Mark McDowell Memorial Foundation is hosting a fundraising golf tournament and silent auction Saturday at Fox Den Country Club.
Proceeds will go to a yearly scholarship at South Iredell High, building a practice soccer field at the school and eventually contributing to a new medical facility or other public building in Mecklenburg or Iredell counties.
Needed are sponsors, donations, silent auction items and golfers.
The foundation was established in memory of McDowell, 26, who died when his F-15 Strike Eagle jet went down in Afghanistan July 17, 2009, as he was supporting Operation Enduring Freedom.
All donations to the foundation are tax-deductible. For sponsorship forms or to register for the tournament, visit www.captainmarkmcdowellmemorial.org.
