With folks eager to get together in person instead of on a screen, the Center for BrainHealth‘s 2022 Legacy Award supper at the Dallas Country Club on Tuesday, January 25, was the perfect opportunity for guests like Bukky and John Olajide, Mary McDermott Cook, Jan and Fred Hegi, Marena and Roger Gault, Beverly and Don Freeman and Friends of BrainHealth Co-Chairs Brian Conroy and Brandi Sinclair. Event Co-Chairs Josey and Craig Kennington along with Honorary Co-Chairs Craig Hall and Gary Kelly served up a program blending insight thanks to Dr. Geoff Ling and some old fashioned fun directed at the evening’s honoree, former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert. Here’s a report from the field:Center for BrainHealth hit a hole-in-one at the 15th annual Legacy Award Dinner at the Dallas Country Club celebrating the Honorable Thomas C. Leppert. Everyone knows and appreciates Tom for his years serving as mayor of Dallas, not to mention his 30-plus years leading major national and international corporations in the areas of construction, financial services, home building, real estate, and academic success. And, his service as a co-leader of the BrainHealth Project made him the fitting choice for BrainHealth’s 2022 Legacy Award, the Center’s highest honor. Even honoring someone with such a high-caliber business and civic resume, Dinner Chairs Josey and Craig Kennington wanted to make sure the evening was anything but stuffy. They wove golf elements throughout the event as a nod to Tom’s favorite pastime, starting with golf ball-shaped escort cards on tees stuck in real grass, and ending with the favors – golf ball cake balls – which BrainHealth Chief Director Dr. Sandra Bond Chapman warned the guests not to try to play with, or they would be disappointed!
