WARREN, Pa. – The Blue Star Mothers of Kinzua 203 recently received a pair of large donations thanks to individuals and other organizations around Warren County.

Sharon Sveda and Katie Penley, along with the Youngsville American Legion Post 658, held a golf scramble to raise money for the Blue Star Mothers.

When it was finished, Sveda and Penley presented the group with a check for $5,000.

“These ladies are amazing,” Blue Star Mothers said. “We are so grateful for (their) hard work and commitment to our nation’s military.”
