There will be great prizes available at the 2nd annual Richard Hagy Memorial Golf Tournament Silent Auction, to be held this Saturday, Sept. 29, from 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. The event will be held in the clubhouse at The Golf Club At Magnolia Landing, known as one of Southwest Florida's premiere golf courses, following a golf tournament.
The event will benefit the Richard Hagy Memorial Scholarship Fund, which will benefit three area students from three different schools.
"Richard was really passionate about the anti-bullying cause," said Nancy Hagy, a Cape resident and Island Coast High teacher. "That's part of the scholarship process. Students had to write an essay on anti-bullying."
Her husband, the late Richard Hagy, was a popular local coach and former principal at Mariner Middle School. He died tragically after breaking up a school fight at another school in Fort Myers.
"We have friends flying in all the way from Texas for his tournament," she said.
Nancy Hagy is very exited about the donations.
