the invocation followed by dinner.

Methodist Health System Foundation President and CEO April Box Chamberlain said after dinner, "As is our tradition with this event, we took the passion of the recipient and coupled that with the needs of Methodist. Tonight, you'll have an opportunity to see how your support of Mr. Brinker will impact Methodist Health System, and our mission to improve and save the lives in our care."

Chamberlain then announced that proceeds from the event will benefit Methodist's Emergency and Trauma services. Methodist Health System serves more than 140,000 patients each year, making its hospitals some of the busiest emergency departments in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Last year alone, Methodist provided more than $81 million in unreimbursed charity care, and the Folsom Leadership Award event as the largest fundraiser for Methodist, helps cover some of these costs.

Event co-chairmen Doug Brooks and Pete Schenkel then spoke about Mr. Brinker's leadership and influence in their lives. Brooks said, "Norman always gave respect to others, and knew he had to earn it back. He's been a legend in sports, business, and the community, and we honor him tonight."

After the remarks, a dramatic montage filled the room featuring Methodist's trauma services and highlighting care provided to dozens of Dallas police and fire fighters. Schenkel then declared, "We are pleased to announce that in this the fifth year of the Robert S. Folsom Leadership Award event, we've once again raised more than $1 million. Because Norman wanted his gift designated for emergency and trauma services, Doug and I are pleased to announce the new Norman Brinker Emergency and Trauma Center at Methodist Dallas Medical Center." This center will serve more than 60,000 patients annually.

Steve Folsom, chairman of the board of trustees for Methodist Health System Foundation, then presented the Robert S
