Brooke Ann Coats, 16, died in February 2011 after being thrown from a bull and kicked in the chest.

The family of Brooke Ann Coats, the Riverview teenager who lost her life in a tragic bull riding accident last year, will host the second annual Brooke Ann Coats Memorial Golf Tournament on March 26 at the Temple Terrace Golf Club at 200 Inverness Ave. in Temple Terrace.

Coats was an animal lover who participated in FFA and worked with autistic children at Riverview High School. To honor her memory, proceeds from the tournament will benefit Autism Awareness, FFA Agricultural Education programs and the Humane Society of the United States.

Tournament play begins at 1 p.m. Food and drinks will be available before the games, including a liquor bar and catering provided by Lupton's BBQ. Cost for individual golfers is $125. Corporate sponsorships are $750. To register, visit angels-of-hope.org/golf-tournament.
