A Family Member HomeCare of South Florida assists seniors & families with Personal Home Health Care
Hollywood, Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach County, Florida (PRWEB) April 16, 2011
Brian Gauthier and the staff of A Family Member HomeCare joined the Meyerhoff Center as Lead Sponsor of a successful Salute to Super Bowl and Miami Dolphins Football Legend Manny Fernandez on December 2, 2010.
Thanks in part to the help of Brian Gauthier, CEO and Administrator of A Family Member HomeCare, a South Florida home health care agency, over $70,000 was raised for the Meyerhoff Senior Center at the event.
Mr. Gauthier, a Meyerhoff Center Board member, was on hand with the entire staff of A Family Member Home Care to congratulate the football hero.
Manny Fernandez, a legendary member of the undefeated 1972 Miami Dolphins and an executive at the Sunrise, Florida office of First American Title Insurance, was honored that night for his 40 years of dedication to South Florida in a December 2, 2010 tribute benefitting the Joseph Meyerhoff Senior Center.
The dinner event, which was held at the Signature Grand in Davie, celebrated Fernandez' football accomplishments, as well as his career-spanning dedication to South Florida charitable causes.
Fernandez was bestowed with the Meyerhoff Community Award as part of the December 2 program. Of Fernandez, Hall of Fame Miami Dolphins Linebacker Nick Buoniconti said, "Super Bowl VII was the game of his life--in fact, it was the most dominant game by a defensive lineman in the history of the game." Among other individual accords, Fernandez was voted by Pro Football Weekly and USA Today as a member of each publication's "All-Time Super Bowl Team" and was named "Outstanding Defensive Lineman" by the Miami Dolphins from 1968 to 1973. He played in three Super Bowls for the team, two of which were victorious (Super Bowl VII and VIII).
"Manny's ferocious determination-both as a football player and as a friend of the community-exemplifies the perennial South Florida spirit," said Meyerhoff Chairman Mike Colodny. "The kind of excitement he generates in all his efforts is what makes South Florida such a great place to live."
All proceeds from the December 2 dinner event went directly to benefit the Hollywood-based Meyerhoff Center, which has been serving older South Florida adults and their families by providing a variety of programs and services since 1978.
