Thirteenth Annual Vance C. Miller, Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament

LIFT your golf clubs this Monday, March 29 for the Thirteenth Annual Vance C. Miller Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament at Prestonwood Country Club in Plano, Texas. Hosted by loving parents Tincy and Vance, brothers and sister, Vaughn, Greg and Cynthia, the Miller Family created this golf tournament to honor the memory of Vance C. Miller Jr. by raising money for charity and celebrating his love of golf.

So grab your clubs for a day of competitive golfing fun from 11:30am – 5:30pm. After purchasing your Mulligans head over to the putting area for the putting contest. Then at 1:00pm, the Tournament begins with a shotgun start. As you advance through the Hills Course, there will be several contests: Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive and of course a Hole-In-One.

After the Tournament, head over to the Clubhouse for dinner and the Awards Ceremony. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase for some amazing prizes including three individual Men’s Luminox watches, a golf bag and wedges.

100% of the proceeds go towards two charities. One is LIFT – Literacy Instruction for Texas, an agency founded in 1961 to enhance lives and strengthen communities by raising the adult literacy rate in Dallas. Their free English-as-a-Second Language Literacy and Adult Basic Literacy classes are offered at 15 locations in the Dallas area and they served over 8,000 students last year. Over the last 5 years the number of adult learners participating in LIFT programs increased by 300% from 2,103 to 8,000. For more information, visit http://www.lift-texas.org/.

The event also benefits the Vance C. Miller, Jr. Classical Guitar Scholarship established in 1998 by a gift from Henry S. Miller, Jr. and Juanita Miller. The scholarship provides funding for undergraduate and graduate students studying classical guitar in the Meadows School of the Arts at Southern Methodist University. The recipients are chosen by faculty recommendation of students who exhibit outstanding artistic ability on the classical guitar. For more information, visit www.smu.edu/meadows/music.

Entry fee for an individual player is $150; $600 for a foursome. Sponsorships are available from $2,000 to $750. To participate or donate, please contact Valorie Hubler at 972-419-4005 or vhubler@henrysmiller.com.
