Halie Hite
*Second 'Halie's Rainbow' Halie Hite Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament set for Aug. 6

Plans are in place for the second "Halie's Rainbow" Halie Hite Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament.

The event, according to organizers, will take place Saturday, Aug. 6, at the Oak Ridge Golf Course.

One of the organizers, Hite family friend Shelly Lambert, told The Brazil Times she believes this year's event will be as large as last year's.

"Last year's turnout was great," Lambert said. "We filled all of our team spots and unfortunately, had to turn some teams away.

"This year, we have reserved the course for the whole day and, if need be, we can have two shotgun starts with one being in the morning and the other in the afternoon. We are anticipating more teams this year. Our ultimate goal is to fill up the entire day with teams."

Like last year, entry fees will cost $200 per team. A cash payout of $400 will be awarded to the winning team and the second-place team will receive $200. In addition, gift cards will be awarded to the last place squad.

Skill holes and prizes and/or cash payouts will also be available.

Hole sponsorships are available again this year at a cost of $100 (Gold), $75 (Silver), and $50 (Bronze).

Lunch will be provided and a silent auction and raffle have been planned.

Prizes include a Bud Light Super Bowl Neon, tickets to a St. Louis Cardinals' game, Indianapolis Indians' game, Cincinnati Reds' game, the Indianapolis Zoo, Chicago Science and Industry Museum, Shedd Aquarium in Chicago and more.

Raffle tickets will go on sale soon.

"Last year, after the tournament, we would run into people that played in the tournament and everything said was always positive," Lambert said. "Most said they were very impressed on how well it was organized and how smoothly it ran.

"With having two tee times this year, it should run even more smooth. I attribute the success of last year's tournament to those who supported us with prizes, hole sponsorships and our golfers that attended to show their support for the cause. We could not have done it without this community's help. We thank everyone so much for that help."

Those interested in participating should send their entry to Halie's Rainbow, 709A, N. Alabama St., Brazil, and make checks payable to Halie's Rainbow. Those interested in sponsoring a hole may send payment to the same address.

All proceeds will be sent to the Wabash Valley Community Foundation and will be placed in the Halie Hite Memorial Scholarship fund, which was set up Feb. 20, 2010.

Every year, a $500 scholarship will be given to a Northview band student, winter guard participant or cheerleader in Hite's memory. Contributions to the scholarship fund may be sent to www.wvcf.com/giving_online_memorial.html or directly through the Wabash Valley Community Foundation, Inc., 2901 Ohio Blvd., Suite 153, Terre Haute, Ind., 47803.
