In 2013, the Bolivar Peninsula Lions Club was given the opportunity to started managing the tournament and distribution of funds raised towards scholarships and has grown the tournament to become a major fund raiser.
All proceeds go towards scholarships to graduating students from the Bolivar Peninsula. Students attending High Island or Ball High in Galveston are eligible but must live on Bolivar Peninsula. Two (2) scholarships were presented to graduating students in 2014 and four (4) were presented in 2015. Each year the Holtzclaw Foundation sponsors the Children's "Hardhead" contest which the winner receives a $500.00 Scholarship.
