2019 CFJ GOLF FUNDRAISER—A SMASHING SUCCESS
The 10th Annual LACBA Counsel For Justice Charity Golf Tournament and Networking Dinner was truly a celebration of giving. During its first 10 years, this annual fund raiser has netted $500,000 for LACBA's Pro Bono Legal Service Projects (Domestic Violence, Veterans, Immigration, and AIDS). Our projects assisted over 18,000 clients in 2018 to obtain critical legal services.
This year the CFJ Golf Fundraiser was moved to the beautiful Wilshire Country Club. One hundred and twenty golfers and over a dozen major sponsors participated, were greeted by an energetic events team for breakfast and a putting contest before 30 foursomes teed off for an afternoon of golf and interaction with our on-course sponsors and games.
As the golfers came off the course, they, and nearly 100 dinner/networking guests, enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and networking on the club’s terrace. Our sponsors, guests and golfers interacted, exchanged contact information and enjoyed the company of their colleagues before dinner, where awards were given, projects lauded, and sponsors gratefully recognized.
We would like to recognize and offer a special thank you to our sponsors:

Locke Lord, Clyde & Co.

Lunch Sponsor – Arnold & Porter
Tent Sponsor – Abari
