Annual Golf Tournament to Benefit the WLA's Linda J. Murphy Scholarship Fund - May 8, 2017:

Mark your calendars!  Monday, May 8, 2017, is the WLA's annual Golf Tournament.  All proceeds of this tournament go to the Linda J. Murphy Scholarship Fund for women law students (a 501(c)(3) charity), which benefits deserving and talented female law students in the form of a scholarship award. 

This year, the tournament will be held at The Orchards Golf Course, located at 1499 Golf Course Drive in Belleville, Illinois.  Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., with a Shotgun Start at 10:00 a.m.  The cost is $100 per golfer, and you can sign up individually or as a team.  Lunch, dinner, snacks and drinks will be provided.  Men and women of all ability levels are encouraged to participate!  You do not need to be an experienced golfer to enjoy yourself at this event.  This event not only raises money for a good cause, it is an excellent networking opportunity.  Invite your clients, colleagues, family or friends, and join us for fun and fresh air on Monday, May 8th at The Orchards!
