About Erich Schuette PTSD Awareness PB Fund Raiser

Jeff Donovan and Erich Schuette were pickleball partners and won Gold together at the 2015 Utah State Championship. Erich suffered from PTSD from his last Afganistan tour and ended his life in July 2016. After Erich’s passing, Jeff met with Erich's wife Heike and his brother Willie. Jeff felt inspired to put on a pickleball tournament to honor his friend and friend's family and help player friends receive closure. The tournament began with a short PTSD awareness program. After tournament expenses and generous donation match from John Gullo, Jeff raised $7,000 for Erich's family. In June of 2017, the tournament was held again this time with first ever Pro Am. The tournament received 5 Stars reviews and 99.7% approval rating. More than $30,000 was raised.
