“My favorite quote from Dr. Louisa Moats who is an expert in reading and human development is ‘Reading is the fundamental skill upon which all formal education depends,’” said Geraldine “Tincy” Miller, mother of Vance C. Miller, Jr. “I am so proud of what LIFT does in our community. It is the best way to help adults read.”
Henry S. Miller, Jr. and Juanita Miller established the Vance C. Miller, Jr. Classical Guitar Scholarship in 1998 to provide funding for undergraduate and graduate students studying classical guitar at SMU.
In addition to benefitting these charities, the $225 entrance fee covers lunch, 18 holes of golf and dinner. Four hole-in-one contests will give golfers the chance to win $10,000 cash. There will be prizes for closest to the pin, longest drive and first, second and third place teams, based on net and gross scores.
“The golf tournament is a day of fun that also benefits two worthy causes,” said Greg Miller, CEO and President of Henry S. Miller and the brother of Vance C. Miller, Jr. “We are privileged to honor Vance’s memory with an event that he’d be proud of.”
