4th Annual Brooke Walton Memorial Tournament raise dollars for students

Posted:

WAVERLY (KWWL) - It was a perfect Sunday to spend out on the golf course. More than 100 people hit the links for the 4th Annual Brooke Walton Memorial Golf Tournament at Waverly public golf course. Walton died in March of 2006 while she was on spring break. Sunday's golf tournament, in her name, helps raise money for the Waverly-Shell Rock Dollars for Scholars program. Last year the group raised $3,500. Despite the economy this year, family members says Sunday's event helped honor Brooke.

"Words can't describe how she's remembered. I think she's remembered as a leader she will always be the inspiration for all of us to go forward," said Bill Marmie, Brooke's uncle.

Team KWWL among the teams supporting the Walton family. No word yet on how much money was raise. Brooke's 23rd birthday was Saturday.
