Memorial golf tourney helps Crosby seniors

CROSBY — Nine years ago, as students and parents were getting ready for Summer Vacation, tragedy struck the Jamail family when Al and Sheryl lost their son Jared in an auto-pedestrian accident near Dayton.

The Jamail’s turned their tragedy into triumph as they resolved to carry’s Jared memory forward by helping other high school students. Jared, who died at 16, was an active member of the Crosby FFA, Lake Houston Youth Soccer and Crosby 1st United Methodist Church.

To help his classmates, as well as those who followed at Crosby High School, the Jamails created the Jared Jamail Memorial Scholarship and its signature fundraiser, the Golf Classic.

Since its inception the family was awarded over $120,000 in scholarships. This year is no exception, with seven $2,500 scholarships and one $3,000 scholarship awarded.

Plans are now underway for the 10th Annual Jared Jamail Memorial Golf Classic. The event will be held Sept. 13 at the Newport Golf Club.

Individual entry fees are $65 a person or $260 for a four-an team if paid before Sept. 1. After Sept. 1, fees are $75 for individuals and $300 for a team. Fees include green fees, lunch and cart.

Sponsorships are also available at varying levels. The Eagle Level is $750, which includes a four-person team, lunch, cart, company banner, 3 hole sponsorships and 4 caps. The Birdie Level is $500 which includes a four-person team, lunch, cart, two hole sponsorships and four caps.

For $300 a company can get a Par Sponsorship, which includes 2 players, lunch, cart, two hole sponsorships and two caps. All sponsors will also be included in the event program.

Hole sponsorship signs are available for $100 each.
