TODAY: Bar Foundation Golf Classic June 28

The Philadelphia Bar Foundation's 23rd Annual Golf Classic, one of its biggest fundraisers of the year, will be held at The ACE Club in Lafayette Hill today, June 28. The proceeds from the event fund the Bar Foundation's grants program that helps ensure that justice is for all, not just for those who can afford it.

"What differentiates this from other charity golf outings is that we cap the field at 108 golfers and you play your own ball so players get to experience ACE, one of the premier private courses in the area, as their own private golf club for the day," said Golf Committee Co-Chair David Kessler of Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP, the Presenting Sponsor of the 2011 Golf Classic.

Golfers will tee off at 11:30 a.m. after brunch and will compete for best net or gross score, longest drive, closest to the pin, best putt and best chip shot.

Not a golfer? Join us for an open bar cocktail reception and Surf and Turf dinner at 5:30 pm. A silent auction with high-end items donated by local restaurants, businesses and golf clubs will be part of the festivities.

Call 215-238-6347 or go to philabarfoundation.org for more information.
