As a follow-up to a blog post from a few months ago I wanted to CONGRATULATE Overbrook GC’s Meghan Fahey on being recognized as the top national fundraiser for the 2014 AJGA Leadership Links program. Meghan raised an incredible $14,700 for the Michelle Deasey ’17 Memorial Scholarship Fund. This scholarship fund was created in memory of my cousin, Michelle Deasey, who passed away during the winter of 2007 from a rare liver disease. Michelle, whose smile could absolutely light up even the darkest room, was one of Meghan’s closest friends and our entire family is so proud of what Meghan was able to accomplish.
I am sure Michelle is looking down right with that infectious smile all aglow on her face. Her life, though short, brought pure joy and utter happiness to not only our entire family but to her friends and classmates at the Episcopal Academy. I know that Meghan Fahey will continue to honor Michelle’s legacy because that’s the type of person Meghan is and because Michelle was that special of a human being.
Because of her fantastic fundraising efforts Meghan will be honored at the Rolex Junior All-America Awards Banquet scheduled for November 23rd at PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. If that wasn’t special enough Meghan will also have the opportunity to meet with Jack and Barbara Nicklaus before a round at The Bear’s Club, one of Mr. Nicklaus’s most famous designs. And finally, Meghan will also get the chance to play six holes with PGA superstar, Rickie Fowler, at the Medalist Golf Club on November 22nd.
