Distinguished former NFL football coach, Dick Vermeil, will be the event’s special guest speaker during the dinner program.
One of the most prominent coaching careers in National Football League history officially concluded when Dick Vermeil announced his retirement from professional football in January 2006.
Vermeil spent 15 seasons as an NFL head coach and was a member of the league’s coaching fraternity for 19 seasons.
In seven seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, Vermeil engineered four playoff appearances, highlighted by an NFC Championship win over the Dallas Cowboys, and a trip to Super Bowl XV vs. the Oakland Raiders in 1980.
In addition, Vermeil has had a prestigious career as a football broadcaster, analyzing both NFL and college games.
In January 2006, he was portrayed on the big screen by Greg Kinnear in the film “Invincible.”
Proceeds from this year’s golf outing will support the expansion of LVF’s Children’s Services.
This expansion includes a newly-constructed Children’s Services wing at the organization’s Doylestown site, which will give staff the opportunity to see more children in an environment created especially for them.
Expansion of services for children is desperately needed as the numbers of families seeking help for their loved ones is ever increasing.
LVF is particularly suited to meet this need with a cadre of child service experts, from psychiatry and crisis services to therapy.
Golf spots in the outing are sold out, but sponsorship opportunities and dinner reservations for $90 per person are still available.
