Police Officer Tom Smith Jr Memorial Golf Tournament
BackStoppers and Missouri Special Olympics would like to invite you to participate in the upcoming 2022 charitable event!
Following in his father’s footsteps, the young and dedicated Tom Smith Jr. honorably served as a St. Louis County Police Officer and was a proud EMSRA member. Tom Jr made the ultimate sacrifice when he was killed in the line of duty. Proceeds generated by the Memorial Golf Tournament will go to Backstoppers and a charity to be determined.
