May 29, 2009 - 08:00 AM Another great day for the Brite 3. The day was filled with fun-golf and a large rain shower which delayed the afternoon round by an hour. The outing was a big success and we would like to thank our sponsors- Deloitte, Members 1st along with all of our other sponsors. Please take a look at the 2009 photos and look for "the TP Catch". Thanks to our special guests from PSU and an extra thanks to Daryll Clark for throwing the pass to TP which got the night off to a great start.
For the past twelve years, friends of the Brightbill family have been supporting the "Brite 3" Memorial Golf Outing. The "Brite 3" Golf Outing was set up in the memory of Matthew D. Brightbill. Although, Matt lost his life in a 1995 traffic accident, his spirit lives on.
Why is this event called the "brite 3?" Simple, to his HomeTeam friends, Matt's nickname was "brite" short for Brightbill. The number 3 was his favorite number. He wore this number in sports growing up.
So what's the connection to Penn State? Those know Matt will tell you that for college football, there was no other college then Penn State and Happy Valley.
