Like most parents of children with intellectual or developmental disabilities, Esther wanted the best for her daughter. It was Esther’s wish that after she was gone, her daughter Jamie would be taken care of in a beautiful home. After Esther’s battle against cancer ended in 2008, Vaughn McMurtrie and his friends created a golf tournament to support the construction of Esther’s Place, the DSNWK group home where Jamie and six others live.

The proceeds from the tournament continue to support Esther’s Place and eight other group homes in Ellis County.
