About the KA - Evan Spear Memorial Golf Tournament 

This event was started in 2017 by the University of Arizona, Kappa Alpha Order fraternity and is held each year in memory of our fallen KA brother Evan Spear.  Evan lost his life in 2015 in a car accident while traveling home to Colorado after his sophomore year at the University of Arizona. Evan was a great friend to many and known for his big smile, easy nature and his knack for bringing people together. He was always a brother to count on. At the time of the accident, Evan was a registered organ, eye and tissue donor and he gave the gift of life to four people, gift of sight to two people and he also enhanced/saved the lives of 31 people through his tissue donations. We gather each year to remember our KA brother's life and to honor his decision to be an organ, eye and tissue donor, raise awareness for the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation and to raise money for the Evan Spear Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. 

The Evan Spear Foundation's mission is to provide Donor Family support by providing financial assistance for grief counseling for those Donor Family members and to raise awareness and encourage young adults to register to be organ and tissue donors.
