Gabby Accad (Versatile Vehicles, a loyal sponsor of Tee it up for the Troops) and Jennifer Gouette (King Solutions, a logistic tranporting business) were honored by John Kline as recipients of the Star of the North Congressional Award. They received the reward in recognition for their part in getting a golf cart to Afghanistan for our troops.
The Star of the North Congressional Award was designed to publicly recognize the extraordinary acts of service, the random acts of kindness of Minnesotans in the 2nd District to our community and our world.
“We are blessed in Minnesota to be surrounded by so many selfless individuals who are willing to step up to address the needs they see in our communities and beyond,” Congressman John Kline said. “These ‘Stars of the North’ have given far more than they have received — volunteering, offering a helping hand, reaching out to a neighbor to ask, ‘what can I do for you?’ “
