Foundation Golf Tournament Rescheduled

PHILADELPHIA--The 18th Annual Philadelphia Bar Foundation Golf Classic has been rescheduled for Monday, August 7.

The event will be held held at Philadelphia Cricket Club in Flourtown. The 18-hole tournament, which benefits the Foundation, will be held on both the Wissahickon and Militia Hill courses.

The 2005 tournament raised more than $100,000 for the Bar Foundation--the charitable arm of the Philadelphia Bar Association. During 2005, the Foundation funded 29 law-related programs with grants ranging from $2,000 to $100,000.

Prizes will be awarded for team low net, individual low net and individual low gross. A new prize for law-firm (defined as a foursome with at least three members from the same firm) low gross will also be awarded.

The tournament is open to the public with a general fee of $375 that includes greens fees, golf cart, lunch, refreshments on the course, and cocktails and dinner. Members of the Association’s Young Lawyers Division may participate for a discounted fee of $295. Event and hole sponsorships are also available.
