Golf Pros, and volunteers came out to support Texas Center for the Missing (TCM), Houston’s Amber Alert Provider, and to enjoy a great day of golf that raised needed funds to keep local children safe.
The day began with a welcome from Golf Chair Paul Thompson, Jr., followed by a Shotgun Start sending 22 teams scrambling on this beautiful Houston area course, with contests and activities throughout the day. Following the day’s play, the 19th Hole Party honored all the tournament’s participants and contest winners, and featured Title Sponsor representative, Brad Bouillion of Allegiance Bank, and TCM CEO Beth Alberts.
The extraordinary support of Title Sponsor Allegiance Bank cannot be honored enough! Other pacesetter sponsors included: Ascension Capital Advisors, April and Wells McGee, Opportune LLP, and Toeppich and Associates. Representatives from the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and Houston Police Department attended as well.
With a wide array of talented golfers, the tournament proved competitive! The 1st Place Championship Teams were the Ascension Capital Advisors team for 1st Place Gross Score, and the Allegiance Bank North Loop team for 1st Place Net Score. The Closest-To-Pin competition was won by Jerry Duggan, the Longest Drive competition was won by Paul Thompson, Jr., and the Putting Contest was won by Dennis Bosworth.
Overall, the tournament raised $58,885 for Texas Center for the Missing! These funds will support Houston’s Regional Amber Alert System, child and parent Internet Safety classes, Amber and Silver Alert activation training, Child ID Kits for local families, and crisis case management services for searching families.
Every year, Texas Center for the Missing serves more than 80,000 people and directly works with families to recover missing children and endangered adults. As Houston’s Amber Alert AND Silver Alert provider for the 14-county Houston-Galveston Region, Texas Center for the Missing receives no federal or state funding for these life-saving programs, thus fundraisers like the October 8th event are paramount to keep this invaluable service available to the community at large. As the golfers departed, it was obvious that the community had successfully rallied behind this worthy cause, and had a great time in the process. Texas Center for the Missing’s next fundraiser event will be our annual Champions for Children Gala, Let Your Dreams Set Sail, which will be held April 24, 2021.
