Thank you to everyone for your kind words following the Penn Gazette story. We are so thankful for you to take the time to read the story, share it with others and to express your support for Kevin.
We want to share a quick event update since it is almost here!
The Friends of Kevin Neary tournament is just two months away, on September 16, at Wyncote Golf Club.
A quick review of some of the things in the works.
The Fanatic’s Brian Startare will emcee what promises to be a great day of golf, fun, and friendship.
Reserve your ticket now; they are moving!
Ten sponsors have already nabbed golf holes; only eight left!
So many people working on this event! Kevin’s supporter and friend extraordinaire, Bill Burland, is a one person promotion machine, encouraging ticket sales and sponsorships. Kevin’s family…..especially Aunts Marianne and Denise, Uncles Steve and Chris, cousins Jennifer and Jeff and brother Joe are all working on the event, supported by so many of the FOKN crew.
Jessica Ewing put together the stunning event poster.
