 6th Annual Patrick John Fox Memorial Golf Classic

We are less than 6 weeks away from the 6th Annual Patrick John Fox Memorial Golf Classic! With your help and support we have graciously given out more than $10,000 in scholarship money and another $5,000 in support of various families in need. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine we will still be going strong more than half a decade later! I cannot express enough gratitude for your continued support; let’s keep this thing going for another 6 years!

We are in our final year of our dedicated $10,000 scholarship to a former Turpin High School student, one whom considered Pat a mentor and role model. He followed in Pat’s footsteps by coaching the Turpin Freshman football team, going undefeated and being named the ECC champs. He also excels in the classroom, posting a 3.82 GPA last semester. After a successful internship in the renewable energy industry, he accepted a position in San Diego, CA to pursue a career in this field. It is clear his life continues to be impacted by Pat’s legacy and our contributions have helped him blossom into the young man he is today. It has truly come full circle as he coaches the freshman team, as Pat did for him close to 10 years ago. Congratulations, JR.

Our fund also continues to support the Turpin High School scholarship in Pat’s name, to those on the offensive line identified by the football coaching staff as deserving to wear Pat's #53, honoring his memory each time they suit up. Although the students did not know Pat directly, the privilege of wearing his number is considered a high honor both on and off the field. We received two solid applicants this year and will provide a further update on these student athletes after the outing.

I can’t wait to see everyone at this year’s outing and more importantly, to wear the Champions jacket to the post-outing cookout! Bring your A-game and it could end up in your closet!

The official invitation is the photo. We were able to keep pricing flat this year, thanks to Stonelick Hills’ continued partnership to our cause. Be sure to RSVP for your spot!
