Aug. 19 golf tourney to honor Blake Whipple, soldier killed in Afghanistan

The second annual Memorial Golf Tournament to honor the memory of Army Spc. Blake D. Whipple, who was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2010, and to raise money for veterans, their loved ones and students, is scheduled for next Monday at Park Country Club, Amherst.

David and Kim Whipple, Blake’s parents, say their son’s devotion to “loyalty, selfless service and duty” motivates them to continue with the tournament. Money raised goes to Western New York Heroes, Folds of Honor Foundation and Williamsville East High School’s Blake D. Whipple Award.

The tournament at the country club, 4949 Sheridan Drive, gets under way at noon, with registration beginning at 10:30 a.m.
