18th Annual Steve Hull Golf Tournament set

PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (WTOK) - The Dancing Rabbit Golf Club hosted a luncheon Monday in honor of the upcoming 18th Annual Steve Hull Golf Classic.

The tournament is in honor of the late Steve Hull, who was a former East Mississippi Community College basketball coach.

It began as a way to raise money for the education of Hull's two children, Trex and Baleigh, after he passed away from a massive heart attack in 2001. He was playing golf at the Dancing Rabbit at the time.

Hull's daughter says the tournament is a way for her to feel close to her father.

"This tournament is how I learn about my dad. I was five years old when my dad passed away. This is where I get to know my dad every year. People come up to me and hug my neck and say, let me tell you a story,” said Baleigh Hull.

This year's tournament is scheduled for June 6.
