On Saturday, August 20th, WellStone was honored to be included in the 1st Annual Scott Morgan Memorial Bass Tournament. The tournament was organized by Daniel Douglas, a lifelong friend of Scott’s, to celebrate the life of a special young man and to raise awareness and support for those who face the challenges of depression. The Morgan family, Ernie, Wanda and Jason, have also generously supported these efforts to connect others experiencing depression with help through WellStone.
The tournament had great participation from several fishing teams and received generous sponsorships from League Engineering and Surveying, LLC and Refuge Church. Jordan Lee and Wes Ward took first place in the tournament and earned the Big Fish award. The anglers earning a payout from the tournament generously donated their winnings to WellStone in honor of Scott. All those participating also generously donated their entry fees to support treatment for those experiencing depression and other mental health disorders, which resulted in over $1,000 being raised for treatment through WellStone! Brian Davis, CEO, spoke to the tournament participants about the importance of educating ourselves and others about depression and how to get help. Daniel Douglas presented the Morgan family with a commemorative plaque to mark the beginning of many tournaments to come.
Thank you to the Morgan and Douglas families, as well as all tournament participants, for being champions for mental health!
