7th Annual Denis S. Barry Golf Outing Brings Together True "SUPERHEROES"

Old Brookville, NY --

As friends and families gathered around the links at the prestigious Cedarbrook Country Club, one could easily feel the warmth and excitement of the Denis S. Barry Foundation. A tropical theme painted the Club's background for a live and energetic day on the course with many golfers sharing their putting techniques and 'stories' of their lowest rounds.

As the golfers closed out the day, they were welcomed by former N.Y. Jets football player, James McKinstry, who autographed memorabilia as a member of the original 1963 Jets team. 'Big Jim' raised the spirits of the auction and opened the door for Janet Barry, Event Chair, to remind everyone of the vision of Denis Barry and the importance of the event.

Influenced by Barry, Speaker Jennifer Tumminello delivered a moving speech, "We can be the heroes here too and you don’t need a cape…just a heart. Please consider supporting both the Marty Lyons Foundation and the Denis S. Barry Foundation so that families in such need at such a difficult time will know that they are not alone, that there is hope, and that Superheroes are indeed real!"
