Mental Health Association Announces An Evening With David Feherty

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – (JUNE __, 2013) – The Mental Association in Forsyth County has announced plans for its annual fundraising event, to take place Friday, August 16th at the UNCSA Stevens Center in downtown Winston-Salem.  Presented by RockTenn, the event will include a Sponsor Meet and Greet Reception at 7:00 pm and will be followed by the program from 8:00 pm-10:00 pm. Titled “An Evening with David Feherty,” this year’s event will welcome author, golf commentator, TV host and retired PGA golfer David Feherty.  Feherty retired from professional golf in 1997 and during his career amassed a number of victories worldwide, including the BMW Open, Italian Open, Scottish Open and South Africa PGA. A popular on-air personality, Feherty is a golf commentator for CBS and also the Golf Channel.  His show on the Golf Channel, “Feherty”, is the most popular show on the network.  Feherty has interviewed both sports and entertainment figures on the show, including President Clinton, Samuel L. Jackson and Donald Trump, just to name a few. Feherty will comment on his professional career as well as his own personal struggle with depression and alcoholism.  Additionally, he will speak on his non-profit Troops First Foundation, which benefits wounded military personnel upon their return from the Middle East. “We are so excited to have Mr. Feherty coming to Winston-Salem to share his story,” said Andy Hagler, executive director of Mental Health Association in Forsyth County.  “We know that he will do a great deal in helping to break down the stigma that is so often associated with mental illnesses.  He is proof that a person with mental illness can lead a very successful life and that their illness is not a character flaw or weakness and that it does not define them.” RockTenn, a national producer of corrugated and consumer packaging with local offices, is presenting this year’s event.   “RockTenn is proud to be a part of this exciting local event,” said Executive Vice President Craig Gunckel.  “The Mental Health Association and their mission line up perfectly with our overall strategy of supporting local health agencies that strengthen our community.” For more information on purchasing tickets to this event please call the Mental Health Association in Forsyth County at (336) 768-3880.
