What: The JDRF Houston 27th annual “Tee Up To Cure Diabetes”

Where: BraeBurn Country Club

PC Moment: One day it’s balmy, another it’s chilly. What’s a Houston golfer to do when wardrobe planning in winter for a charity tournament?

When it came to this fundraiser, the weather gods declared a cold and windy day. So out came the ski caps, puffer jackets, long johns and the occasional fur earmuffs. Layering was the key to this golf outing that raised $134,000 for JDRF.

David Long chaired the event that spotlighted Charlie Epps, local legend, PGA member and coach to two-time major championship winner Ángel Cabrera.

While the day began with a light lunch, the finale was a fried chicken dinner after which Epps provided amusing anecdotes and inspiring words, including “Don’t let fear stop you from reaching your dreams.”
