Rockwall Red Raiders to host 12th Annual Memorial Golf Tourney benefiting graduating Rockwall ISD seniors

(ROCKWALL, TX — Aug. 31, 2016) Guns Up! The Rockwall Area Red Raiders invites all to its 12th Annual Tommy Hooper Texas Tech Memorial Golf Tournament on Friday, September 23, at the Rockwall Golf and Athletic Club. Golfers can get in some practice swings on the range and also enjoy lunch beginning at 12 p.m. Shotgun start for the Florida Scramble-style tournament begins at 1 p.m.

All proceeds of the event will benefit scholarships for selected RISD Seniors attending Texas Tech University. The Rockwall Red Raiders — a group of area Texas Tech alumni — began their Tommy Hooper Texas Tech Memorial Scholarship Fund back in May 2005 when they awarded their first Texas Tech Scholarship to graduating Rockwall senior Heather Kimmons. The Rockwall Area Red Raiders have awarded more than $180,000 in scholarships since that time.

The scholarship fund is named in honor of Tommy Hooper, who passed away in March 2005 after a long battle with cancer. Tommy owned his own CPA practice in Rockwall and was a graduate of Texas Tech with two degrees – finance and accounting. He also served as a Trustee on the school board for the Rockwall Independent School District for 12 years.
