Pinkerton Tournament Benefits Salvation Army

Former Smith County Commissioner Don Pinkerton was known for his support of the community. Even after his passing, Don is still supporting East Texas.

The Don Pinkerton Memorial Golf Benefit was held at Hollytree on Monday. The ball drop alone raised almost $40,000. 

Money from the event goes to The Salvation Army. Don Pinkteron served on the charity's board and wife Pat says it was an organization that meant the world to him.

"It just had a special place in Don's heart," Pat said. "He was proud to serve on the board. We give back to many charities but this a service that takes a family in need, and takes that child and put it in daycare service so a mother can work. It's an honor to be able to give back to the Salvation Army."

Monday's tournament was bitter sweet. It would have been Don Pinkerton's 60th birthday. Also, Smith County Judge Larry Craig was a member of the Salvation Army board as well and served as one of the organizers of the tournament. Judge Craig passed away on Saturday.
