Haley Bain Open still looking for participants

Thursday, June 24, 2010

The South Putnam Haley Bain Memorial Open will take place July 16-18 at South Putnam High School. The Open begins at 9 a.m. on July 16.

The tournament is being spearheaded by Bain's teammate Kendra Latham and her mother Rita and will benefit the Haley Bain Memorial Scholarship.

There will be divisions for people ages 10 and under and 55 and above for both men and women. The cost for singles is $20 per person and is $14 per person for doubles. There will be a goodie bag for each person entered into the tournament.

The Open is still looking for sponsors for the event as well. Companies or persons looking to donate can obtain forms by e-mailing latham@ccrtc.com

Bain passed away on May 29 as a result of an ATV accident near her home, and Kendra wanted to do something to honor her classmate, teammate and friend.

"After all, what is better than helping young adults further their education with a scholarship," she said
