Patrick Heinold was 17 years old when he took his life on February 4th, 2017. Patrick was the last person anyone expected to fall to suicide, as he was everyone's best friend and favorite person, and thrived in all that he did. Patrick was a member of the Bolles' Men's Varsity Basketball Team and also participated in band and Junior Mentors while attending The Bolles School as a junior. Patrick was a member of the Parking Ministry at Christ's Church and was an active member of Young Life. Patrick's legacy will forever live on in how he treated others, befriended everyone he met, and embodied Christ in everything he did. We will miss and love you forever Patrick.

The Genesis of Patrick's 3v3 Basketball Tournament

Patrick's teammates / classmates came up with the idea of a 3v3 Basketball Tournament in his honor.  The ringleaders were Collin Grasher, Mackie Garwood, Jacob Glassman, Will Shepherd, Davey Crouch, Josiah Johnson, and Rushton Roberts. The Bolles School graciously hosted the 1st Annual Patrick's 3v3 Basketball Tournament on Saturday March 17th, 2018 (Saint Patrick's Day!)

We cannot thank them enough for the time, effort and love that got this off the ground and running. There were many solid parent's behind the scene as well and of course all the volunteers! We are Blessed.  Hank, Kristin and Paige Heinold



We also funded the local Young Life organization with $5,000 for their summer camp scholarship program.
