Close to $100,000 raised at

2009 Dwight Stephenson Hall of Fame
 Golf Classic

NFL Hall of Fame Football Athletes and Olympic Gold Medalist participated

 

 

Fort Lauderdale, Florida - - - On April 6th some of the world’s super athletes that included NFL Hall of Famer football players and an Olympic Gold Medalist converged on the Weston Hills Country Club in Weston, Florida for the 2009 Dwight Stephenson Hall of Fame Golf Classic.  Their athletic efforts helped to raise close to $100,000 for the
Dwight Stephenson Foundation.

 

The tournament preceded with a VIP reception sponsored and hosted by the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida.

 

The star athletes who joined NFL Hall of Fame football players and former Miami Dolphin Dwight Stephenson  at the two-day fundraiser included Dick Anderson, Bob Beamon, Bennie Blades, Brian Blades, Bob Brudzinski, Keith Byars, Jeff Dellenbach, Autry Denson, Troy Drayton, Mark Duper, Darrell Fullington, Reggie Givens, Hugh Green, John Hannah, Bobby Harden, Ted Hendricks, Jim Jenson, Leroy Kelly, Paul Krause, Bob Kuechenberg, Paul Lankford, Larry Little, Fred Marion, Dan Marino, Curtis McGriff, Don McNeal,  Bobby Mitchell, Nat Moore, Earl Morrall, Eugene “Mercury” Morris, Tony Nathan, Don Nottingham, John Offerdahl, James Pruitt, Don Shula, Charley Taylor and
Jason Taylor. 

 

The winning golfing team was Moss Construction which was lead by former Miami Dolphin Dan Marino.

 

More than16 years ago, Dwight and his attorney wife Dinah founded D. Stephenson Construction which is headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  In 2007, Delray Beach residents Dwight and Dinah Stephenson established the Dwight Stephenson Foundation in an effort to continue and expand their community service.  The foundation has created an opportunity to engage more professional athletes in philanthropy to help raise money for needy children and families.  Ruth Cyrus of Fort Lauderdale serves as the President of the Board of Trustees of the foundation.

 

The mission of the Dwight Stephenson Foundation is to leverage the sports and business communities in an effort to raise money to help support programs for children and families in the areas of education, health and human services in Palm Beach, Broward and Dade Counties.  The Dwight Stephenson Hall of Fame Golf Classic is one of the fundraising activities of the Foundation.

 

The 2009 golf classic raised close to $100,000 and will be supporting charities in Broward and Palm Beach Counties that includes the American Diabetes Foundation of Broward, the Boys & Girls Club of Broward & Palm Beach Counties, the United Cerebral Palsy Foundation of Broward and the Urban League of Broward.

 

In 1980, Dwight Stephenson was a second-round pick and the 48th player selected in the 1980 NFL Draft to play professional football for the Miami Dolphins where he played for coach Don Shula.  Stephenson played in 107 straight games and started in 80 consecutive games until the 1987 players’ strike ended the streak. He was also the starting center in the 1982, 1984 and 1985 AFC championship games and in Super Bowls XVII and XIX.  In 1985, Dwight was the recipient of the NFL’s Walter Payton’s Man of the Year Award. Dwight’s football accomplishments were grand and he is considered one of the best football Centers to ever play in the NFL. His football feats were permanently recognized when he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1998.   Dwight was also one of the first African American’s to play Center in the NFL history. Dwight retired from the Miami Dolphins in 1989.
