25 years ago: Golfers donate Kansas Open winnings to Cottonwood

July 29, 2012


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for July 29, 1987:

  • Three professionals playing this week in the Kansas Open Golf Tournament had shown great generosity in turning their winnings over to a local agency. Rick Reynolds, Randy Towner, and Steve Ball had donated a total of $500 to Cottonwood, Inc., a local agency serving people with developmental disabilities, saying that their actions were prompted by "love and affection for the program," according to Judy Morris, Cottonwood's director of development. All proceeds from the tournament were going to benefit the agency, and Mrs. Morris referred to the extra donation as "a welcome surprising bonus."
  • Eighty-seven delegates from schools across the country were attending a health and development conference at Haskell Indian Junior College. Students, school faculty, administrators and health care professionals from as far away as New Mexico and South Dakota had traveled to Lawrence to attend sessions on sexuality, mental health, and chemical abuse issues and strategies.
