Golf, for a Good Cause

Posted by David Logan on 09/08/2009 at 12:00 AM

The Law Alumni Association’s 10th Annual Golf Tournament at Cranston Country Club is in the books and it was another terrific event.  The heat and humidity did not stop alumni, faculty, staff, and friends from taking part in a fun day that included golf, (way too much) great food and drink, prizes, a raffle, and a silent auction.  The winners of the “best ball” competition were P.K. Palmer ‘02, Greg Calat, and Mike Marciano.  Among the other notable teams was a foursome featuring three of the most popular teachers on our Adjunct Faculty: United States District Judge Will Smith, Associate Justice of the Rhode Island Superior Court Daniel Procaccini, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Rose, joined by our irrepressible Dean of Career Services Tony Bastone.  Among the other highlights: Linn Foster Freedman, a partner at Nixon Peabody (and member of the RWU SOL Board of Directors) won the prize for the longest drive by a woman and another foursome was anchored by Prof. Jorge Elorza, who hit the links with students.  Many thanks for the generous support from our tournament sponsor, Morowitz & Barry, and the many students, staff, and alums (a special shout out to tournament co-chairs Anthony Leone ‘97 and Kim Tracy ‘07!) who helped to make the day such a success.  All proceeds from the tournament go into the Law Alumni Association Scholarship Fund that provides deserving law students financial assistance with their legal education expenses.  Below are some photos from that fun day.
