More on Jeremy

For a Great Cause
In a previous post we told you about the stunning loss of Jeremy Duncombe Butler, a local man who had studied abroad then returned home to earn a college degree only to lose his life in an auto accident. Jeremy was a Las Vegas native as is Andre Agassi. Jeremy spent a year in France as a Rotary Scholar then graduated from the prestigious Las Vegas Academy with honors and earned a degree in corporate communications from UNLV. Andre became a world class tennis champion then founded the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy in one of Las Vegas's most econimically deprived neighborhoods. The school is designed to provide kids with opportunities they would never have otherwise had.
On November 19 the Second Annual JeremyDuncombe Butler Golf Classic will be held at the Angel Park Golf Course. Last year's tourney raised money to help Jeremy's family tend to his needs during his three month hospitalization prior to his death. This year the Andre Agassi Foundation in cooperation with the Rotary Club of Las Vegas-Southwest and Vie Las Vegas Magazine joined Jeremy's family to set a goal of $ 100,000 to fund overseas exchange programs for graduating seniors of the Andre Agassi College Prepatory Academy.The first graduating class commencement is set for June, 2009.
The golf tournament and dinner will be held Monday, November 19 at Angel Park Golf Course in Las Vegas. Afterwards a banquet and silent auction will be held. All proceeds will go to benefit the Jeremy Duncombe Butler Scholarship Fund. Registration for the tourney can be completed at Donations to the scholarship fund can be made at
Las Vegas is a giving, loving city. Your support is appreciated.
