— The Juli Busken Memorial Scholarship Tournament and Lunch is scheduled for May 7 at Belmar Golf Club, 1025 E Indian Hills Road.

Lunch begins at 11 a.m. followed by a shotgun start for the four-man scramble at 12:15 p.m.

The tournament honors Busken, who was kidnapped from her Norman apartment in December of 1996 and brutally slain. The dance student completed her senior year at the University of Oklahoma a few days before her death.

Cleveland County Sheriff Joe Lester served as OU's police chief when Busken was murdered. Lester said he became friends with Busken's family during the homicide investigation and remains close with them today.

All funds collected from the golf tournament will be donated to the Juli Busken Memorial Scholarship at the OU School of Dance.

“This is the right thing to do to keep Juli's memory alive at the OU School of Dance,” Lester said.

Tournament sponsorships range from $10 to $600. Deadline for reservations is Thursday.

For a registration form, call Bill Tucker at 329-6800 or 919-1746 or Patty Cox at 701-8888. Make checks payable to OU Foundation Juli Busken Scholarship, P.O. Box 5672, Norman, OK 73072-5672.
