Bar Bulletin: Young Lawyers Section chipping in for charity

by: Shea Moser and Adam Edgecombe

Looking to continue the success of its annual golf tournament, the Young Lawyers Section of The Jacksonville Bar Association will host its third annual “Tee It Up” for charity golf tournament Wednesday, Oct. 22 at the prestigious Ponte Vedra Inn & Club – Ocean Course.

The format will be captain’s choice with prizes for first-, second-, and third-place foursomes.

Prizes also will be awarded for the longest drive and closest to the pin.

Proceeds will benefit Sanctuary on 8th Street, a Jacksonville charity.

Located on the east side of Jacksonville in the Springfield community, Sanctuary on 8th Street provides a stimulating environment for inner-city children and youth.

The sanctuary’s after-school program and summer camp offer a variety of enriching and creative programs and activities, designed to minister to the whole child, helping them develop into healthy, productive adults.

The group also offers a small home school for elementary students, where each student receives scholastic support and enrichment activities.

The facility provides an intimate, close-knit family atmosphere for the children attending their programs.

Everyone looks out for one another.

The sanctuary also helps the children find their way to productive futures and enables them to break the cycle of poverty and hopelessness.

In addition to great golf, a complimentary lunch will be available to players at check-in, as well as complimentary range balls and cold beverages during play.

An awards ceremony and reception will be provided for volunteers and participants at the end of the tournament as we celebrate the winning teams and enjoy more complimentary drinks and a variety of tapas.

The entry fee for the tournament is $1,250 per foursome. There are a wide variety of sponsorship opportunities for those who wish to participate.

Committing to be a sponsor at the “Tee It Up” for charity golf tournament is an opportunity for you and your company to receive wonderful exposure to the legal and business communities in a fun and festive environment.

Lawyers, judges and other legal industry service providers will be there. But it is more than a marketing opportunity. It is the chance to contribute to a worthy organization that makes a difference in the lives of inner-city children and youth in the Jacksonville community.

In 2013, “Tee It Up” raised more than $14,000 for a Jacksonville charity. Our goal is to surpass that this year.
