Plan to attend the 18th Annual Bryan C. Pottberg Memorial Golf Tournament at Lakewood Oaks Golf Club in Lee’s Summit. The tournament will be August 16th, 2021. Proceeds from the tournament are used to fund scholarships for high school seniors who will be pursuing a career in public safety. Proceeds may also be used to fund improvements at Pottberg Park.
Bryan Pottberg died in the line of duty while serving the Lee’s Summit Fire Department on July 15, 1999. This tournament helps to keep Bryan’s memory alive and honor his sacrifice. We hope to see you out on the golf course. More info on the tournament, to view the flyer, and how to get involved can be found here.
