Vance C. Miller, Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament

Partnerships are vital to a non profit. Without them we could not exist. We could not serve the people. Literacy Instruction for Texas (LIFT) has been very fortunate to have the Vance C. Miller Family as a long time partner in our mission to raise adult literacy rates in Texas. Vance and Tincy have long carried the banner for adult literacy on the local, state and national levels. Tincy has served on the LIFT board and on the Texas State Board of Education. They are great friends to LIFT.

For the past twelve years, the Miller Family along with their friends, family and business associates, have hosted the Vance C. Miller, Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament. Proceeds from the event are shared between LIFT and the Vance C. Miller, Jr. Classical Guitar Scholarship atSMU.

This year's tournament is this upcoming Monday, March 30th at Prestonwood Country Club Hills Course in Plano, TX. I never had the good fortune to meet Vance, Jr. but he must have been a wonderful man to be surrounded by great friends and family who continue to celebrate his life with his first love - a great game of golf with good friends.
