Golf Tournament

Registration is now open for Hailey’s Voice of Hope’s Seventh Annual Golf Tournament, Halloween Ball and Silent Auction scheduled on Saturday, October 26, 2024 at Heritage Isles Golf and Country Club. For sponsorship and attendance information, please see the below tabs.  As past attendees will confirm, we have been fortunate to sell out every year weeks in advance, so please do not wait to register.

In addition to the many things our foundation has accomplished in the past, please watch this video regarding the Lead U program that Hailey’s Voice of Hope and the Joshua Kernohan Foundation funded together and brought to four Hillsborough County schools in March, 2024.  Since that time, four employees with the Hillsborough County School District traveled to New Jersey to meet with the Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide in an effort to bring this amazing program to more schools in our district.  We love the dramatic and direct impact on the students, and we will continue our efforts to move this initiative forward to reach more students.

We continue to support organizations that raise awareness of mental illness and prevent suicide, so every year our foundation makes substantial donations to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), the National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI), and the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay.

As a result of our efforts in 2019, when we partnered with the Hillsborough County School Board and the Jordan Binion Project to bring a one-week mental health education class to Hillsborough County high school students, 56,664 high school students participated in the HOPE classes and received the curriculum.  This number increases by approximately 10,000 students each year.  The class helps students identify signs of mental illness and helps them identify available resources. For more information about the curriculum, please visit

In addition, on February 3 and 4, 2022, Hailey’s Voice of Hope sponsored Dr. Scott Poland from Nova Southeastern University to train almost 300 local school principals on the warning signs of teen suicide, suicide prevention, suicide post-vention and mental health awareness.

Hailey’s Voice of Hope also sponsored the printing costs of five mental health brochures for Hillsborough County students. In all, 150,000 brochures were printed for use in all Hillsborough County middle and high schools. The brochures cover the following topics: (1) suicide prevention; (2) bullying; (3) coping strategies; (4) sexual harassment; and (5) stress management. The brochures were placed in the schools at the beginning of the school year and were printed in English and Spanish.  We are continuing to work with Pasco County Schools on a similar brochure campaign.

Finally, from January 31, 2023 through February 3, 2023, Hailey’s Voice of Hope sponsored two 2-day trainings on the PREPaRE Workshop 2 3rd Edition. The PREPaRE model describes crisis response team activities as occurring during the five mission phases of a crisis: (a) prevention; (b) protection; (c) mitigation; (d) response; and (e) recovery. In all, eighty (maximum capacity) staff members of Hillsborough County Schools received training on The PREPaRE model, which is a framework of crisis prevention and intervention designed for schools to address students’ mental health needs. A crisis can be characterized as an event perceived to be very negative, generates feelings of powerlessness or entrapment, and may occur suddenly or unexpectedly.

For more information about what Hailey’s Voice of Hope has accomplished, in 2023 Hillsborough County created this video highlighting the partnership between the district and our foundation. The video can be found on our website (
