SPRING, TX -- The Second Annual Mental Health Heroes Classic was held on Wednesday, March 30th, and was a great success for the community and Shield Bearer. The tournament, held at Gleannloch Pines Golf Club in Spring, raised $20,000 for mental health access through sponsorships and tickets.

The Creekwood Grill provided lunch before the tournament. The golfers headed out on the course were able to interact with tent sponsors, including Renee Lee, Realtor, Shell Federal Credit Union, Sulcata Psychiatry, Tax-keeping by AC, and Stallion Roofing and Solar. After the tournament, everyone came in for a Texas BBQ lunch and a Hole-In-One Shootout on the 28th hole of the course! Unfortunately, no one won the $50,000 this year, but our fingers are crossed for a winner next year.

We want to take a moment to thank some of our sponsors, including Gold Sponsors – The Fitzpatrick Group, Northwest Dodge, Century 21 Brian Panacek, and Kingwood Pines Hospital. Our award sponsor: Keating Auto Group, and our Hole-in-One Sponsor: Katherine Darby Lee, Chair of our Board of Directors. Our Towel Sponsor – Edward Jones, Rick Skinner. Our Beverage Cart Sponsors: MRI Diagnostics and America’s ER.
