Additional funds will be donated to the Johns Hopkins Pulmonary Fibrosis Research Fund which funds research for better treatment and potential cure for the disease that took Devon from us. 

2013 was our first annual tourney and we raised enough money to establish two $2500 scholarships .

2014, at The 2nd Annual DAM Golf Tournament, we were even more successful. Our generous sponsors, players, family and friends raised enough money for two more $2500 scholarships, which will be awarded in the spring of 2015, with enough to also donate more than $7000 to Johns Hopkins. What a wonderful effort by all.

2015, at The 3rd Annual DAM Golf Tournament we sold out and raised even more than in years 1 or 2. On May 19, 2016 we will award 2 scholarship checks each worth $3,400.00 and we made another donation to Johns Hopkins of $10,540.00.

2016, the 4th Annual DAM Golf Tournament was another great success. We raised enough money to award 2 scholarship checks each worth $3,000.00 and donate a little more than $6,200.00 to John Hopkins.

We look forward to hitting the links again on September 18, 2017 for the 5th Annual DAM Golf Tournament. We hope you’ll join us and help us make the DAM Golf Tourney more successful than any of the previous years. 

Money raised from the DAM Golf Tourney funds scholarships for two Portland High School graduates – one soccer player and one lacrosse player. As a Portland High School student, Devon was a standout player on the lacrosse and soccer teams. Recipients of the scholarship are selected based on the same qualities that made Devon a strong player and an outstanding teammate.

Each year, to honor our unending love for Devon, we gather our hearts, spirits, and signature pink tees together and play golf, one of Devon’s favorite pastimes.
