Kris Walters Benefit August 27 at Fox Ridge in Dike


Brecken and Berkley Walters are too young to understand yet just how their lives changed on April 12.

That fateful Tuesday was the day their Dad, 30-year old Kris Walters, died in a motorcycle accident. Kris' untimely and tragic death left Marie Walters a young widow and 2-year old Brecken, and his 11-month old brother, Berkley, without their father.

That's why a special fundraiser golf tournament will be held August 27 at the popular Fox Ridge Golf Course in Dike to benefit the Walters' two children, Brecken and Berkley. All proceeds from the August 27 event will be directed toward Kris Walters' children.

While Kris was well known as a devoted husband and father, he also very much loved the game of golf. That's one reason a golf benefit is such a great way to pay tribute to Kris and his kids.

As Marie points out, "Kris was admired, respected and at the top of his game. There were so many things he planned to teach his sons and help them with. This benefit gives us the opportunity to help make some of that possible."

The day-long benefit is being sponsored by Mudd Advertising. The golf event itself is already full, but the public is invited to take part in the many other activities to benefit the Walter's children.

The day will include both silent and ‘Live' auctions, as well as games and fun activities for kids of all ages. The Kris Walters Memorial Committee is organizing the August 27 event at Fox Ridge, and is still accepting prizes and donations and will do so right up until the event.

To make a prize or monetary donation for the Kris Walters Benefit Golf Tournament, you can contact Heather Seevell by phone at 319-859-9654, or via e-mail at
