Golf outing raises $45,000 for Lenape Valley Foundation

 

Lenape Valley Foundation (LVF) hosted its Fourth Annual Golf Outing on Monday, July 15th, at Doylestown Country Club. 

Don Polec, formerly of Philadelphia’s 6-ABC Action News, served as emcee at the event. Robert Rogala, LVF board member, of Doylestown, served as event chairperson. As a highlight of the event, Jim Murray served as special guest speaker during the outing’s evening reception. 

In 1974, Jim was named general manager of the Philadelphia Eagles. During his tenure as general manager, he took the franchise from the NFL’s cellar to Super Bowl heights. In 1976, he and owner Leonard Tose hired Dick Vermeil as head coach. For four consecutive years, from 1978 – 1981, the Eagles made the NFL playoffs under Murray’s guidance. 

After the 1980 season, the Eagles played the Raiders in Super Bowl XV. This was the first Super Bowl appearance in the franchise’s history.

During his 14 years with the Eagles, Murray assumed leadership roles in a number of community projects. He helped start the very successful Eagles Fly for Leukemia campaign. He was also a founder of the first Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia.

More than $45,000 was raised from the outing and proceeds benefit more than 30 high-quality programs offered by LVF, which has provided compassionate assistance and hope to thousands of children, adults, and families in Bucks County for over half a century. 

LVF offers a comprehensive behavioral health system proudly serving individuals within the service areas of mental health, intellectual disabilities, and early intervention. The foundation’s mission is to partner with members of our community encountering mental health, substance use, intellectual or developmental challenges as they pursue their personal aspirations and an enhanced quality of life.
