Brothers back the blue
This summer, we felt like we had to do something to show our support for the police officers who protect us each day. We both have always admired and respected our police. These brave officers show up for work each day to make sure we all get to school safely, protect our community 24/7 and identify criminals sometimes even before crimes are committed. Not long ago, there was an incident on our own street, and we were very impressed at the professionalism and speed of the officers who eventually caught the criminals.
To show our support, we started Birdies Fore Blues, a charity golf tournament to honor our Memorial Villages law enforcement. Since we both enjoy golf, and Hunter is a member of the Memorial High School golf team, we thought this could be a safe and fun way to raise money for these brave officers who protect our family and yours in the Memorial Villages. This event will bring our parents, lots of our friends and first responders together to support a great cause and enjoy the sport we love.
The costs of this event will all be underwritten by the Jim and Amy Lee Family Fund, so each dollar raised goes straight to the Memorial Villages Police Foundation. This foundation is a non-profit organization created to raise funds to help officers, dispatchers and civilian employees of the department. Funds that are raised will also go to partnering charitable organizations that provide financial assistance to less fortunate individuals in our community.
The tournament will be held on Feb. 18 at The Clubs at Houston Oaks, 22602 Hegar Road in Hockley. For more information on the event, please go to memorialvillagespoa.org.
We are excited to show our support and would love to have anyone interested join us. After all, who do you call if you find yourself in a bad situation if you do not have the police?
