2019 Heart Award Honorees

The Heart Award is given in honor of Kevin “Heart” Garvey in recognition of our outstanding volunteers who have opened their hearts to our guests.

Kevyn Adams and his parents Ken and Diane Adams

Kevyn, General Manager of Harborcenter, Director of Academy of Hockey, and President of the Buffalo Junior Sabres has been the host of our Celebrity Golf Classic and a dedicated volunteer at the event for more than 20 years! He has been instrumental in strengthening our relationship with the Buffalo Sabres and Pegula Sports and Entertainment and continues to recruit local celebrities for the cause. 

His wonderful parents, Ken and Diane have been two of our most generous volunteers and supporters. Diane has volunteered at our front desk nearly every Tuesday for more than 20 years, and Ken has been a key member of our Celebrity Golf committee recruiting local celebrities and alumni for the event. 

Thank you to the Adams family for your generosity and support of the KGH mission!
