Trailblazers News · Girls Basketball Hosts Tournament in Honor of Fallen Soldier


I am hosting a girls basketball tournament at Golden West High School from December 12th to December 15th.  The tournament is named after and will honor PFC Keith M. Williams, a former student of mine at El Diamante High School. Keith lost his life at the age of 19 in Afghanistan fighting the Global War on Terror.

On the 15th Keith’s mother, Debbie Tuttle-Williams, will be at the tournament with the vehicle that honors her son.  I am asking you to open up your heart and pockets to help support her scholarships at El Diamante as well as the veteran groups that she supports.  I hope you will take this opportunity to show your support for the finest youth in our community, as that is what Keith represented in sacrificing his life for his country.

If you are able to help, please make checks out to PatriotMOMS and send them to PO Box 7356 Visalia, Ca 93290.  If you would like to make a tax deductible donation, you can make the check out to PatriotMOMS ℅ VFW Aux Post 1864. Checks can be sent to their Treasurer, Susan Harms, at 566 N Crawford St. Dinuba, CA 93618.  The VFW is a 501(c)19 non-profit Veteran support group.

Respectfully,

Russell Gostanian
