2021 Annual Golf Scramble
This Summer, for the seventh time, Husker Salute is sponsoring a golf scramble near Ashland NE at Ashland Golf Club beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, June 25th. All proceeds from the scramble will go toward this fall's event. Meet former Husker football players, bid on husker memorabilia, compete in various flag prizes and join in on multiple challenges throughout the course. This year our special guest speaker will be Ryan Held. (Huskers Running Backs Coach) For more information and to sign up, go to: 2021 Golf Scramble - HUSKER FANS SALUTE THE TROOPS 2021 (huskersalute.org)
Help us honor our military men and women by donating HERE.
Our mission is to salute Nebraska Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines: active duty, national guard, reserve, retired and veterans, to say “Thank you for your service to our Nation” so they know the Husker Nation will never forget their sacrifice and dedication.
This is an unprecedented event in the history of military support to the Armed Forces. This weekend hosts troops and their families from all services, of all ranks, to come together and cheer on their team. This weekend is more than just a watch party, though. It is a chance for these servicemen and women to be treated like the heroes.
2021 marks the 14th year for this event. 2008 was our first year held during the OU game and attended by about 70 troopers and their families. Since then we have had to limit our attendance as it has grown to nearly 500 attendees. Each year we try to improve the troopers experience and being our fourteenth year we are expecting it to be the best.
Registration is limited to members of all branches of the United States Military, active or retired.
The "Salute" organization will provide: On Saturday Meet former Husker Football greats! Attend a watch party for when Nebraska takes on Illinois, complete with food, drinks, door prizes and special activities for the kids. A free night stay at the Cornhusker Marriott Hotel that night. Sunday a brunch to honor our military men and women with a guest speaker. First time registrants will have to pay only a small $40 non-refundable registration fee to hold their reservation and repeat registrants will have to pay a $65 non-refundable registration fee.
We cannot do this without the support of Husker fans everywhere. The “Salute” weekend provides military members a unique opportunity to spend a dream weekend around something they love. Our board's goal is to provide a weekend for the military families at no cost to them except a nominal registration fee.
Will you please help us honor the service of fellow Nebraska fans by providing funds or by donating goods and services? Any donation level is appreciated and helps our efforts. Husker Salute is a non-profit organization that is staffed by all volunteers. All donations are tax-exempt through Husker Salute under the 501c3 tax code. Please contact us if you have any questions.
