The tournament also honors the late Henry M. Bell, Jr., former Chairman of the Board of the ETMC Foundation and long-term supporter of the East Texas Medical Center Regional Healthcare System. We extend special thanks to the Bell family and our sponsors, players and volunteers who make this tournament a success each year in support of ETMC's mission of care.
