More About The 17th Annual Robert C. Lockyer '68 Golf Invitational
A team's participation will help fund Thomas Jefferson University's teams travel for overnight games and tournament competition; facility and field improvements; top players recruitment; and need- and merit-based financial aid to well-deserving students.
This event helps nearly every student. With 17 NCAA Division II intercollegiate sports teams, numerous intramural sports and a wide array of recreation activities, close to 50 percent of students on the Jefferson – East Falls Campus participate in athletics. More than 90 percent of our students receive financial support.
Half of the proceeds from the 2017 event supported current students. The other half funded new windscreens for capital improvements like the Baseball and Softball fields, and weather protection tents were installed for both home and away benches at the Ravenhill field where Soccer and Lacrosse are played.
About Thomas Jefferson University
Thomas Jefferson University was founded in 1824 as Jefferson Medical College, and Philadelphia University was founded in 1884 as the Philadelphia Textile School. Both were ahead of their time and focused on the importance of experiential learning. The new Jefferson was established on July 1, 2017 as a result of the merger of these two renowned universities.
The school is a professional university that defies convention and dedicates itself to collaborative, transdisciplinary and interprofessional approaches to learning that offer a vibrant and expandable platform for education. Through this unique model, we are preparing our students for current and yet-to-be-imagined careers – setting tomorrow’s standards by breaking today’s.

At ECBM, we understand that insurance programs are more than an end; they are a means to meet business and financial objectives that change over time. ECBM works with our clients to design and maintain a risk management approach which is built on a solid foundation and knowledge of their business goals and corporate climates. Uninsured losses are expensive as are improperly handled claims. At ECBM, our focus is providing the lowest net cost to our clients at all times.
ECBM builds long-term relationships with all the clients we work with. It frees us from the burden of over-consulting. We give solid, appropriate advice each time we meet, even if that means making a suggestion that will earn us less money. Earning our clients' trust and retaining their business is the key to everyone's success. Maintaining strong client relationships requires superior service. ECBM strives to provide that service by knowing our clients, their business needs and providing quality insurance and risk management services to meet those needs.
When clients choose an insurance broker, they should not only get expert advice, but an attitude, a culture, and a way of doing business. At ECBM we offer all of these things. ECBM not only does good work for our clients but work that is more on target, more meaningful and more valuable to their businesses.
