4th Annual Henry Prendes Charity Golf Classic May 21

May 20, 2010 by  

The 4th Annual Henry Prendes Charity Golf Classic – Henry’s Place (www.henrysplace.org), a non-profit organization, was formed in 2006 to honor Metro Sgt. Henry Prendes who gave his life protecting his hometown community in a domestic violence matter. Before his death, the Prendes family had the desire to start a camp for underprivileged youth. Through the support of our community, a 14-acre parcel of land is in development in Cedar City, UT as the future home of Henry’s Place. Proceeds from this event will be used to build cabins and facilities at the new campsite and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Injured Police Officers’ Fund on behalf of the 2009 Fallen Officers.

Joining Henry’s Place Founder Dawn Prendes (Sgt. Prendes’ widow) are L.V.M.P.D. Sheriff Douglas C. Gillespie, Henderson Mayor Andy Hafen and golf pro Mike Dobbyn, 2007 RE/Max World Long Drive Champion who holds the Guinness Book of World Records’ longest drive of 551 yards, among others.
