Steve Folsom Named Honorary Chair for Third Annual C. C. Young Classic Golf Tournament

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Aug 19, 2014) - C. C. Young today announced that SMU alum and current President of Folsom Companies, Inc. Steve Folsom has been named Honorary Chair for the Third Annual C. C. Young Classic Golf Tournament, which benefits the retirement community's benevolence fund.

"I'm honored to partner with C. C. Young and support their benevolence fund program," said Steve Folsom. "The programs and offerings available by C. C. Young and their dedication to arts, education, fitness, health and wellness are vital to the quality of life. Supporting our seniors in their journey, regardless of their financial position, is both important and rewarding."

Steve currently serves on the Board of Directors of Methodist Health Systems and Chase's Place, the Trustee's Council for Children's Medical Center, Chairman of Methodist Health System Foundation, and on the Advisory Board of the Clayton Dabney Foundation for Kids with Cancer. Steve and his wife Sharon reside in Dallas with their three children, Hunter, Annabelle and Chase.

The C. C. Young Benevolence Fund was established to ensure residents always have a place to call home, regardless of their financial position. With over 450 residents currently on campus and a 90 year history of care, C. C. Young has never been in the position to ask a resident to leave because they could no longer afford to stay. With advances in medical technology, people continue to live longer lives than they anticipated, resulting in dwindled finances in their latter years. The Benevolence Fund aims to continue supporting those residents who need it most.

"We are delighted to have Steve join our annual golf tournament as Honorary Chair," said Russell Crews, President and Chief Executive Officer of C. C. Young. Steve's support will help us ensure that our residents can continue to live and celebrate life every day, in the place they call home."

"There is still time to register and join us for a great day on the course -- reach out to me or Jennifer Griffin directly and join us!" says Sharon Ballew, director of fundraising for C. C. Young.
