In memory of Tom Brookshier

Congratulations to Barbara Brookshier and Dick Vermeil as they highlighted the 23rd Annual Devereux Pennsylvania Golf Classic at Philadelphia Cricket Club in Flourtown.  (Devereux is a leading behavioral health care provider.)  I served as Master of Ceremonies for the awards program and live auction and my deep thanks goes to the Devereux staff, board of directors, volunteers, and of course, the golfers, who made the afternoon and evening a success.

The ceremony honored three young men, including Tyrone, seen in the photo below, who have shown great improvement and personal responsibility, working with Devereux, in taking hold of their lives. 

Devereux launched the new Tom Brookshier Heart of a Champion Award, named after the late Eagle great.  His wife, Barbara, was fantastic in helping announce the new honor.   Coach Vermeil got the audience in a giving mood.   As Tom,  a longtime supporter of Devereux and a member of the Advisory Board, liked to say, “It’s about the kids.”
