On Monday, September 26, 2016, the Stevens Park Golf Course hosted the 2016 ATO Fundraiser. The event consisted of 5-member golf teams whose participants paid a fee to play, knowing that all proceeds go to the families of the five officers who lost their lives in the July 7, 2016 shooting massacre.
Jim Henderson, the Director of Golf for the Stevens Park Golf Course, along with Mark Harrison, the Executive Director of the Northern Texas PGA, came up with the idea to host a tournament in which the sole beneficiaries would be the families of the fallen officers. Tee time was at 1 p.m. and all 22 teams began simultaneously at different holes. Each team consisted of one Dallas police officer, one PGA pro, and three amateurs. Each amateur paid $1,000 to play. That money, in addition to sponsors and other contributions resulted in the donation of $71,827.89.
