Annual Supporters of the Kingwood Fallen Heroes Memorial Golf Tournament
Kingwood Fallen heroes was was founded to honor Brandon Bury and raise money for great causes for the military, but unfortunately, additional military servicemen from Kingwood that paid the ultimate sacrifice were later honored in subsequent years, and the golf tournament honors those fallen heroes as well.
This year's Kingwood Fallen Heroes Golf Tournament was held on Saturday, April 28, 2018 at the Clubs of Kingwood. The event honored three Kingwood Fallen Heroes, SGT. Brandon C. Bury, SGT. William Meeuwsen, and LANCE CPL. Luke C. Yepsen. All three men were taken from while serving in combat. This event benefited Hope for the Warriors, Blue Star Moms, Operation Military Embrace, Inc., CreatiVets, and others. These charities support our military, veterans, and their families.
JB Sowyrda, Partner and Co-Founder, and Andrew Barth, Partner and Co-Founder, both graduated from Kingwood High School, so this charity hit close to home. JB grew up with Brandon Bury where they played on the same little league teams. Later through high school and college they would consistently get together for “friendly” card games.
