William “Blaine” Whitworth was born in Houston, Texas on February 21, 1987. Blaine was one of those people that everyone knew and if he was in the room, you knew he was there making things happen. Over the course of his life, Blaine did a little bit of everything - farming, community action, entrepreneurship, cage fighting, and more. Blaine was dedicated to helping others and making a difference in his community.
On September 1, 2012, Blaine’s life was tragically taken. He was murdered at his home in the driveway and the lives of his family and so many others were changed forever. Today, the Blaine Whitworth Foundation exists to keep Blaine's memory alive and continue doing the work he started.

2021 Blaine Whitworth Go Big or Go Home Golf Tournament Recap
This was our first effort in hosting a golf tournament and it exceeded our expectations. We had a full field of participants and over 50 Sponsors. We provided opportunities to win prizes at every hole and concluded with a luncheon and announcement of winners. The air was cool, but did not rain and the 20 volunteers and Mules National staff made sure everything ran smoothly.
Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors at our annual fundraiser we are in the process of endowing our third $1,000 scholarship at UCM which takes $25,000 each. Just this year we were able to contribute to Big Brothers and Big Sisters in Warrensburg and provided a scholarship to a student veteran in the UCM Police Academy. In addition we awarded four Blaine Whitworth Community Service Scholarships at Sherwood High School and contributed toward the renovation project at the Garden City Baseball Park.
This year's efforts made over $20,000 including our silent auction and raffle after expenses which will enable us to continue our efforts to "Make a Difference in your Community." We are very grateful for the ongoing support and commitment of our sponsors, friends, volunteers and community to help us to continue to honor Blaine's memory through our foundation.
