Foundation to Host 17th Annual Golf Classic June 27

The Philadelphia Bar Foundation will host its 17th Annual Golf Classic on Monday, June 17 at the Philadelphia Cricket Club. The general fee for players in $375. A limited number of members of the Young Lawyers Division may play at a discounted fee of $295. Price includes all greens fees, golf cart, lunch, refreshments and dinner and cocktails following the tournament.

Even though both courses will be open for play, space is limited and this event is a perennial favorite. Reserve early and select your course and golfing partners, by contacting Melissa Engler at (215) 238-6347.

Established in 1964 as the charitable arm of the Philadelphia Bar Association, the Philadelphia Bar Foundation is dedicated to promoting equal access to justice for victims of poverty, abuse and discrimination. Enabled by contributions from individuals and businesses sharing our commitment to this principle, the Bar Foundation has served as an essential source of unrestricted support for organizations providing the free legal services needed to carry out this mission. During the past 10 years, the Foundation has awarded more than $4 million in grants to local legal services organizations. In this way, more than 200 years after the ratification of the American Constitution, the Foundation's work brings the principles of the Constitution to life. The Foundation's annual Golf Classic is an important source of support for the annual grants program. Last year, the Golf Classic raised more than $112,000. Proceeds from this event go directly to more than 28 local organizations.
