"I recently heard a quote from T. D. Jakes that said "Greatness is contagious. You'll catch it if you get around it!" I had the opportunity to get around it last year as the Honorary Chairman of the Boys and Girls Clubs Benefit Golf Tournament. So many people came together to make it possible for young people to keep being inspired. And we had the time of our lives doing it! So I'm excited to be the Honorary Chairman again this year. I hope to see more smiling faces this year making a difference. Let the good times roll", Middlebrooks said.
