OAK HARBOR — Machinists Union members who work at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station will host their second charity golf tournament in August.

The cost is $85 per player, which includes cart rental, lunch and 18 holes of golf. Entry forms are available at all Machinists Union District Lodge 751 union halls in Puget Sound. To request a form, call the Everett Union Hall at (425) 355-8821.

The event is a fundraiser for North Whidbey Help House, a community-based food bank that serves northern Whidbey Island. Help House provides supplemental and emergency food, Salvation Army prescription vouchers and telephone health and welfare checkups.

Last year’s inaugural tournament attracted 56 golfers and raised more than $3,500 for Help House.

District 751 represents about 250 civilian workers at NAS Whidbey who are employed by L-3 Communications, Delaware Resources Group and Doss Aviation, who all have joined the union since 2010. The workers at Doss ratified their first union contract in June.

Originally formed in 1935 to represent hourly workers at the Boeing Co., District Lodge 751 of the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers now represents more than 32,000 working men and women at 50 employers across Washington, Oregon and California.
