OKLAHOMA CITY -- Tee off for a great cause. The Oklahoma Sheriff's Office has planned a Fundraising Golf Tournament for Major John Waldenville.

Waldenville is still recovering after being shot while working off-duty at Cattleman's on May 21, 2011.

Waldenville was making a bank deposit in his security job for the historic restaurant when he was shot once in the head, just above the right eye.

The two men believed to have committed the crime, 18-year-old Keonta Prince and 29-year-old Christopher Baker, were both arrested within two days after the shooting.

The tournament will be held at Silverhorn Golf Club on Monday June 27,2011 with a 8 am starting time. Registration to begin at 7 am. Player donation $100 (minimum). There will be a silent auction during the event and lunch will be provided. All proceeds will be donated to Major Waldenville to help with any expenses in his recovery.

Auction items are still needed. If you would like to help out or make a monetary donation, make checks payable to "OCSO FOP 155" and add "Major John Waldenville" on the memo line. For more information contact Sergeant Larry Grant, OCSO Lodge 155 President, at 405-713-1068.
