emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences

PA – April 5, 2019 – On Tuesday, May 14, Devereux
Advanced Behavioral Health, one of the nation’s oldest and largest
providers of behavioral healthcare, will host its annual Golf Classic. This
event will provide attendees with the opportunity to golf at three of Philadelphia’s
premier golf courses: the Philadelphia Cricket Club’s Wissahickon and Militia
Hill Courses, and Sunnybrook Golf Club.
For more than 30 years, the Devereux
Pennsylvania Golf Classic has generated critical funding to support the 3,500
individuals living with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences served
by the organization in southeastern Pennsylvania. One of the few remaining
multi-course, charitable golf outings in the region, the event also will
feature a dinner program honoring Devereux individuals who have overcome
tremendous personal challenges.
“As Devereux continues to expand its innovative programs and services, and
provide greater access to therapeutic programs and compassionate care for
individuals and their families, we understand that we would not be able to
drive our mission forward without the generosity of our friends and community supporters,”
President and CEO Carl E. Clark II. “Our annual Golf Classic has become a
treasured tradition that allows us to generate much-needed funding to support
and enable the children, adolescents and adults in our care to thrive and reach
their full potential.”
