History of the Tournament
Since the inception of the Henry M. Bell, Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament in 2001, the event has raised more than $300,000 as part of ETMC’s cancer awareness and early diagnosis programs.
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.
