KCSO's 2012 Honor Guard Golf Tournament
The Knox County Sheriff’s Office is hosting a golf tournament to raise funds for the Honor Guard and Color Guard. Many patrons will be supporting this effort by competing in the tournament or by becoming a donor or sponsor.
You can become a donor or sponsor by contributing a door prize or monetary donation. A $100.00 donation will make you a hole sponsor. A $25.00 donation will make you a cart donor. Any donations or prizes less than that amount will be recognized on our Sponsor and Donor board. Both contributions are tax deductible.
There will be a four-person scramble. The cost is $300 per each four-person team. The cost is $75.00 for a single player. Start times will be determined in order of paid registration.
This year’s golf tournament will be held at the Three Ridges Golf Course at 6101 Wise Springs Road on Saturday, April 7th 2012. A barbeque lunch will begin at noon. There will be a shotgun start at 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. There will be a Silent Auction, and Lenoir City Ford is providing a car as a hole in one prize. Retired New York Yankees’ player Graig Nettles will attend.
The Honor Guard and Color Guard participate in community events such as opening ceremonies, graduations, and memorial services. They assist other law enforcement agencies with funeral details during the loss of an officer. They also participate in the Memorial Service, which takes place in Washington D.C. on May 15th each year, to honor fallen officers. There were 170 officers in the United States and Puerto Rico that died in the line of duty last year. Six of those were in the state of Tennessee. One of those was in Morgan County.
If you would like to be a sponsor or donate a door prize, please call Brian Cole at (865) 215-5611 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for your support.
