More than $15,000 was raised on May 7 at the 5th Annual Henry Prendes Golf Classic. The tournament was played at the Palm Valley Golf Course in Summerlin.
The money raised at the event will benefit Henry's Place, a camp for underprivileged kids being built in Cedar City, Utah. A portion of the money will also go to the Injured Police Officers Fund.
“I am truly overcome with gratitude for the continuous support of our community in the last five years that has helped turn our dream into a reality, from Metro’s involvement and all of the golfers who participated to the generous donations of friends and local businesses and the media who help us promote our efforts, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.” said Dawn Prendes, widow of Sgt. Prendes and founder of Henry’s Place.
Sgt. Henry Prendes died in 2006 while responding to a domestic violence call.
