Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health hosts annual Golf Classic on May 14 to raise critical funding to support youth and adults with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences
More than 300 supporters expected to attend annual event, which will be held at three of Philadelphia’s premier golf courses, and will feature live/silent auctions and a cocktail/dinner reception
Villanova, 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,” said Devereux 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.”
Devereux Pennsylvania is grateful for its many corporate sponsors, including:
Individual golfer participation starts at $400; dinner-only tickets are $100. Tables, sponsorships and program advertisements are still available. Please contact Meghan Gary at firstname.lastname@example.org or (610) 801-2171 for more information.
