A shotgun start will proceed promptly at 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 4. Lunch will be provided for all players and volunteers.  

The charity is hosting the tournament at a new venue this year in an effort to expand its reach within the community.

The 2013 Golf Tournament – a four-man, best ball scramble – will be followed by an award ceremony.

Chris Crawford, president of the Craig Crawford Memorial Scholarship and tournament co-chair, notes that only 144 playing slots are available, and registration for the event has been opened. Early registration is strongly advised.

"The annual Craig Crawford Memorial golf tournament has become a very popular charity golf event for business owners and community leaders," Crawford said. "Continued support for the golf tournament is a result of people and businesses wanting to make a difference within their community. Our sponsor, player and volunteer support are what make this charity event possible. Please help us make a difference in the community by supporting highschool students’ college educations and our law enforcement."

Benefits

A North Texas 501(c)(3) charity recognized by the IRS, the charity's philanthropic mission is to provide education, training and equipment grants for law enforcement agencies to help make children, families and communities safer, and to help offset education costs for area high school students.

The high school scholarship program is designed to lessen the financial burdens of college education for tomorrow's leaders, and to provide educational opportunities for students and families which continue to decline each year because of monetary constraints caused by escalating education costs.

Proceeds from the 2013 Craig Crawford Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament will benefit law enforcement and high school grant programs within local communities. Through scholarships, law enforcement and high school students receive the monetary support they need to complete training, education and/or state licensing programs. Annually, the Craig Crawford Memorial Scholarship provides scholarships for high school students and law enforcement Peace Officer Academy certifications.
