Brooke Parker was taken from us back in November. But a scholarship fund has been created in her honor. And you can help raise funds for it at the Brooke Ashton Parker Memorial Golf Tournament.

I've known Brooke's dad, Brett, for years now. We've worked together a number of times on auctions and other things. You honestly couldn't meet a nicer man. He always has a smile on his face and a kind word and a handshake for a friend. Knowing the pain he and his family are going through right now is really hard to fully comprehend. But if you know any of his family, then you know they still greet their friends with a warm smile and a hug or handshake.

So it's going to be a personal mission of mine to help them out in every way I can. I hope everybody can share the news about this golf tournament that will raise money for the Brooke Parker Scholarship Fund.

Brooke was an athletic trainer at Lubbock Cooper ISD. And the scholarship will benefit Lubbock-Cooper students.

Right now, they are trying to gather some sponsors and silent auction prizes. So if you can donate something really cool, or you run or know of a business that wants to be a part of this, please contact the fund at their Facebook page.

Currently, the date for the tournament hasn't been finalized, but I will let you know as soon as all the details are set in stone. And thank you in advance for caring and helping this amazing family turn their tragedy into something amazing and beneficial to other students.

Don't EVER drink and drive, please. For Brooke's family.
