Thomas Boggs: A Tribute

Read more about Thomas Boggs here (Memphis Flyer article) and here (Wiki) and here (obit) and here (Memphis Daily News tribute).

Thomas Boggs, CEO of Huey's, a partner in the Half Shell, Tsunami, and Folk's Folly and tireless community activist, died in May 2008. He was 63.

He was a past president of the Memphis Restaurant Association and was awarded the association's highest honor, the Newt Hardin Award for outstanding service.

Boggs was known for his civic contributions: board member and former president of the Memphis Zoological Society; advisory board member of the Memphis Food Bank; Chairman and board member of the Memphis Convention & Visitors Bureau; and chairman and board member of Memphis In May.

We honor him annually by remembering his legacy at this golf tournament.
