#hersmile Announces Jenna Betti Golf Tournament

On March 2, 2018 the #hersmile Nonprofit, in partnership with the Betti family, is hosting the 4th Annual Jenna Betti Memorial Golf Tournament. Fourteen-year-old Jenna Betti was struck and killed by a BNSF train on March 2, 2014. The #hersmile Nonprofit was started in honor of all the love and support that was given to the Betti family after the tragic passing of their daughter. To date they have helped over 60 families who have experienced a tragic loss of a dependent child or the loss of a parent with dependent children.  They continue to pursue educational opportunities that promote planting the seeds of resiliency in our children and have recently launched a weekly educational video series aimed at motivating and inspiring people to live a fulfilled life despite the challenges of their circumstances.  
In a letter inviting local family, friends, and community members to the March 2nd memorial tournament, Dena Betti writes, “It's extremely bittersweet for me to be writing this email to you. On March 2, 2018, in conjunction with our #hersmile Nonprofit, family and amazing team of volunteers, we are hosting the 4th Annual Jenna Betti Memorial Golf Tournament. I'm sure it's no wonder to you that the bitter and harsh reality for our family is we've lived without Jenna for almost four years now, and there hasn't been a moment in a day when we haven't thought of her or missed her. And although the road of grief is a trying, long journey, there is still beauty and sweetness to be found by living in our love for Jenna and our family, friends and community each and every day. It's in that spirit that we'd like to invite you, once again, to join this continually sold-out event for a day of love, friendship, laughter, and contribution.” To register to play, donate, and/or sponsor the event, go to
Jenna's tournament is being held at Hiddenbrooke Golf Course, an Arnold Palmer Signature course, and it has amazing facilities and views. The event format is a 4-man scramble with a 12pm shotgun. You can support #hersmile by attending this very special event. For more information, please visit
