Noah Scott memorial golf tournament brings the community together

Lompoc community continues to support Scott family

LOMPOC, Calif. - The Lompoc community continues to keep Noah Scott's legacy alive. On Friday, a memorial golf tournament was held in his honor in Lompoc. 

Each swing of the golf club is in Noah Scott’s memory.

"It's a true testament of Noah’s spirit and how he touched people, but, how giving this community is,” said Charles Scott, Noah's father. 

The community continues to rally around the Scott family.

15-year-old Noah passed away in June after his hard-fought battle with cancer.

"What my son has done at the age of 15 is pretty remarkable," Charles Scott said. "Even more remarkable is his ability to still bring people together."

Dozens of people showed up at The Mission Club in Lompoc to play golf.

"I think he touched a lot of lives and that’s why you still see the support out here,” says Andrew Jones, one of the tournament's organizers. 

This idea all started out as a fundraiser for Noah’s family but after he passed away it turned into a memorial tournament.

"Once you start something in this community we decided to keep rolling with it,” said Jones. 

People from the Lompoc community and beyond paired up to play.

Golfers say they wanted the Scott family to know they continue to stand with them.

"I think its incredible that a young man can bring a community together in the way he did,” said golfer Jimmy Vargas. 

Auction items were also raffled off. The proceeds from Friday's event will go directly to Noah's family. 

"There is so much support sometimes my wife Kristin and I don’t feel deserving,” says Charles Scott.
