Friends of the late Tom Bearson cheer during a group shot July 15 for the third annual Tommy B. Golf Outing at Blackberry Ridge Golf Course. The event raises funds for the Tom Bearson Foundation, which does a variety of good deeds in the area. At the July 15 event, 250 people attended, raising a total of $20,000. Besides golf, there was a raffle, silent auction and lots of prizes given away. “The support we’ve received continues to warm our hearts, and the Foundation provides us with purpose in our lives while we keep our son’s memory alive,” said Tom’s father, Greg Bearson. Tom, a college student, was murdered in the Fargo-Moorhead area almost three years ago, and his death remains unsolved.
