On September 30, we will be hosting the 16th Annual Terry Hessong Memorial Golf Tournament and Reunion in Nowata, OK. As many of you know, this is a really special event as we continue to help kids achieve their goal of attending the college of their choice as they pursue a higher education. For those of you that are new to this event, my father, Terry Hessong, passed away in 2001 after a brief bout with leukemia. To honor him, family and friends established a scholarship fund in his honor for graduating seniors of all high schools in Nowata County. To date, we have awarded 31 different scholarships and will be awarding two more in the Spring of 2018, one in the name of Terry Hessong and one in the name of Trey Schwab, a friend and brother to many of us, who passed away in 2016.

Our schedule is:
· 9:00 a.m. – 18-hole scramble – limited to the first 12 groups so sign up now!
· 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. – lunch and silent auction
· 3:30 p.m. – 9-hole “fun” scramble
There will also be breakfast, raffle prizes, and gifts for your participation as well as a silent auction with lots of great items. One of the best things about this tournament is that there is no required entry fee. Just come out and play or watch and contribute whatever you can, no strings attached.
As you can see, there are lots of ways to lend your support. This is strictly a volunteer organization with no paid employees and all donations go to the scholarship fund except for a few costs we incur in hosting the tournament. Cash drives the scholarships, so your donations are appreciated. However, auction items will generate cash at the tournament, so they are just as important.
We appreciate any size and type of donation you can give for the kids!
Thanks again for your continued support. We have truly turned negative events in our lives into positive ones and are very proud of our progress and the lives we have affected. Please be a part of it if you can. Thank you very much!
