This week, the family of Trevor Vautaw will play host to the 5th Annual Trevor Vautaw Memorial Golf Outing to benefit Transformations Center for Healing, a women’s addiction recovery center in Noblesville.
Trevor Vautaw, a 2009 Noblesville High School graduate, died in August 2013 at age 22 from a drug overdose. His family said in the years following graduation, he struggled with opioid addiction that formed after taking drugs recreationally and socially in high school.
On Aug. 4, the golf outing will be at Fox Prairie Golf Course, 8465 E. 196th St., Noblesville. The event was created to raise awareness for addiction recovery and to provide support to organizations, individuals and family members struggling with substance abuse.
All proceeds will benefit Transformations Center for Healing, which offers a 12-month residential recovery center and other recovery programming in partnership with the Hamilton County Jail.
In January, the center opened Trevor’s House of Hope to honor the life and memory of Vautaw. Trevor’s House of Hope is the center’s discipleship program that helps residents transition from the program to independent living. Participants may live there for up to 2 years post-graduation.
In its past four years, the Trevor Vautaw Memorial Golf Outing has donated more than $133,000. Last year, the event included more than 170 golfers and more than 80 businesses from across Indiana.
Check-in begins at 10 a.m., followed by a shotgun start at 11:30 a.m. Registration is $125 per golfer and includes 18 holes of golf with a cart, a box lunch, light dinner, gift bag and entries into the closest-to-the-pin and longest-drive contests. To register, visit trevor19.cbo.io.
