The first annual golf tournament was held at Twin Creeks Golf Club in Allen during the Fall of 2010. By all measures the event was a great success and the support and passion for what was to come was evident. The event has continued to grow and even sold out in a surprising 14 days one year. Through this success, the question became “How can we have a more direct impact and help those in our surrounding communities in a more impactful way?”.
In 2016, Sam’s Search found a local teenager that had started the journey of owning a diabetic alert dog. These specially trained service dogs are capable of sensing low and high blood sugars and taking corrective measures such as alerting another family member, retrieving a juice box or another form of sugar used to combat dangerously low blood sugars. These incredible dogs are just that, INCREDIBLE.
Sam’s Search recognized the impact that Dexter was having and will continue to have on this diabetic family, so it found the perfect purpose for 2016. Sam’s Search did a little research and found out there were some outstanding costs involved with owning Dexter and so after inviting Dexter and his new family to the tournament banquet “just to see what we had going on”, Sam’s Search provided Jasmine a check that paid the balance for her new hero, Dexter. It was a milestone moment for Sam’s Search and had the crowd in tears. Especially Jeremy Roberts, but no surprise there. As with other moments that either raised a question or solidified a previous decision. In the case of Dexter, Sam’s Search knew this was its new path, its new focus. Impacting Lives while searching for a cure.
