GALVESTON (June 2019) – The 10th Annual Michael D. Riley Memorial Golf Tournament presented by The Moody Foundation and benefiting The Salvation Army of Galveston County is scheduled for July 12, 2019 at Moody Gardens Golf Course.
The Moody Foundation is proud to present this annual tournament as the Title Sponsor in memory of beloved community member Michael D. Riley who served as President of Moody Gardens and Vice-President of Gal-Tex Hotel Corporation before his unexpected passing in 2009. Victor Pierson, President and CEO of Moody Bank is chairing the event again. He remembers Riley as “a man whose strength of mind and character set the standard for all of us–as a Salvation Army volunteer, a business leader and friend. Though he achieved great success and had immense responsibilities in the business world, Mike always made time for the two things most important in his life: his faith and his family.”
