THE CAPTAIN TAMARA LONG-ARCHULETA MEMORIAL OPEN KARATE CHAMPIONSHIPS

The proceeds from this event go to a scholarship fund we established in Tammy's name and scholarships are awarded each year to help students going to college.  The scholarship fund goes to home-schooled students attending the University of New Mexico Valencia or Albuquerque campus.

This year we will host our 11th. Annual Captain Tammy Tournament on October 15, 2016.

As of August 13, 2016 will have awarded 44 Scholarships of $500.00 each for a total of $22,000.00.  We also have awarded $5000.00 from the proceeds to the Girl Scout Summer Camp to help girls that cannot afford the camp.  Tammy was a Girl Scout.  This is a total of $27,000.00 these tournaments, family, friends and loved ones have donated to this Scholarship Program.  We are very thankful to everyone that has helped us to help others in our daughter's name.
