A few weeks ago the Orange County Bar Association had its 25th Annual YLS Charity Golf Tournament at Hawk’s Landing Golf Club. It was a great day, and we hope you can join us next year!
DWKMRS partner Doug Martin and associate Bill Tonelli participated in the tournament to raise money for scholarships, The Backpack Project, Inc. and Seniors First.
The Young Lawyers Section (YLS) awards The YLS Scholarship, a four (4) year college scholarship, to an Orange County High School graduate or GED recipient in need of financial aid. The YLS also participates in The Backpack Project and provides needed school supplies to the students of Rock Lake Elementary School. Rock Lake is one of Central Florida’s most economically disadvantaged schools.
Through the golf tournament, YLS also supports Seniors First in providing “homebound” seniors with nutritious meals. 1 in 6 seniors may not know where their next meal will come from. Seniors First offers two meal options to help older adults get the nutrition they need. These programs, Meals on Wheels and Neighborhood Lunch, provide seniors with nourished lives and a connection within their own neighborhood.
