Whoo hoo! The inaugural Joe Avezzano Golf Tournament held on October 8 in Flower Mound raised about $14,000 for Greater Fort Worth area athletes.  Former Dallas Cowboys Special Teams Coach Joe Avezzano was an avid supporter of SOTX. He served on the board for two years and faithfully returned each year to celebrate the Summer Games and the Law Enforcement Torch Run with SOTX athletes.

Eighteen teams and 72 players participated in the tournament.  Thanks for your support!
