Golf tourney to benefit Shane Detwiler Foundation

Organizers are currently signing up golfers and looking for sponsors for next month’s Eighth Annual Shane Detwiler Foundation Golf Tournament. Tourney date is Saturday, September 22, at Atascocita Golf Club in Humble, but we are told early sign up is important. Proceeds benefit the Shane Detwiler Foundation. It was statewide news back on July 13, 2009, when we reported Chambers County Deputy Detwiler was murdered while responding to an emergency call. Previously Shane had served in the Army and was deployed to Iraq as a counterintelligence special agent. For his heroic efforts there, he earned a Bronze Star plus the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal. Back home in Chambers County, he was a Texas game warden for six years. Shane then became a deputy with the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office until he was shot and killed in ‘09 while on duty. Now, the foundation, named in his honor, raises funds to provide scholarships to individuals pursuing a degree in criminal justice at Sam Houston State University – Shane’s alma mater. The foundation also helps purchase equipment to improve the capabilities of area law enforcement agencies. The Shane Detwiler Foundation golf tourney is a four-person scramble. Cost is $125 a person or $500 for a team of four. That price includes lunch, practice balls, a cart, green fees, a barbecue dinner and awards. There will also be a silent auction at the event. Individual, hole and corporate sponsorships are available at prices ranging from $100 up to $5,000. Again, that Eighth Annual Shane Detwiler Foundation Golf Tournament is Saturday, September 22, at Atascocita Golf Club in Humble. It begins at 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start. To sign up early as a golfer or to become a sponsor, call Cheryl Railsback at 832-556-9760.
