Bob Dawes Memorial Golf Scramble

The Fellowship of Christian Athletes of Northern Indiana will hold its second annual memorial golf scramble in honor of Wabash native Bob Dawes. Bob Dawes spent 41 years (37 years at Southwood High School) investing in young people as a teacher, coach, assistant principal, athletic director, guidance counselor and FCA Huddle leader. He was an avid sports fan. He was often found keeping detailed stats or holding a stop watch on the sidelines of a sporting event. He loved following his grandchildren and other students in the community and spent much of his time supporting them. He loved being around people. He especially had a passion for helping young people strive to reach their fullest educational potential and to develop a relationship with Christ. He spent many years investing in students’ lives by being the sponsor of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ huddle at Southwood High School. The father of 4 children and having 12 grandchildren, Bob’s life was dedicated to his Lord, his family, his friends, and his church family.

The Bob Dawes Memorial Golf Scramble will be held at Honeywell Golf Club on July 27th as an afternoon event with dinner to follow. The event raises money for local FCA school huddles and camp scholarships for young people to FCA sports and leadership camps.
