A Tribute to A Friend and Father.

Golf Best Shot to Fund Scholarships.

Brian Carr Golf TournamentTwo and a half years ago, our friend and partner Brian Carr passed away while HRB was displaced by the flood and temporarily located in Hiawatha with our friends at Fastek International. It was a staggering loss for his family and friends, and for the HRB family. He was athletic, witty, bright – and as a CPA – great with numbers. He always kept the scores on the golf course. We think of him often.

To honor their father, Brian’s children have put together a memorial golf tournament to raise funds for the Brian Carr Memorial Scholarship Fund. The event date is September 30, 2011 at Ellis Golf Course, Cedar Rapids, with a shotgun start at noon, followed by a grilled dinner, awards and prizes. These kids have gone to a lot of effort to honor their father. And, we want to help them do that.

Brian attended both MidAmerican Nazarene University in Kansas City and Mount Mercy University in Cedar Rapids and had a positive impact on countless students through his roles as mentor and coach. He was a gifted accountant, father, husband and golfer. The Scholarship Fund benefits accounting students at MNU and MMU.

Brian was a good guy and a good friend. Feel free to pass this message along to anyone else who may have known Brian or just wants to play golf to support a good cause.

All of the information about the event, including registration and sponsorship opportunities, can be found at this link:

I hope to see you there. And so do Brian’s kids – Pete, Maggie, Hilary and Quinn – and his wife Linda.
