Broward Bar Association Young Lawyers Hit Links for At-Risk Kids

October 2nd, 2012   No Comments   Advocacy

When members and friends of the Broward County Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Section hit the links Oct. 13, players will be doing more than vying for bragging rights or the chance at a new convertible. They’ll be raising money for Florida’s at-risk youth. The Boardroom Communications YLS Charity Golf tournament, now in its 25th year, will steer 100% of its net proceeds to Florida’s Children First, the state’s premier advocacy organization for at-risk youth, as well as the local Broward Chapter of Florida Youth SHINE, a youth-run, peer-driven organization works to change the culture of Florida’s foster care system.

“Everyone will have fun and many will be playing to win. But the Tournament showcases the best our profession and supporters have to offer,” said Howard Talenfeld, a prominent Fort Lauderdale child advocate attorney with event sponsor Colodny Fass Talenfeld Karlinsky Abate & Webb, and Founder and President of Florida’s Children First. “Between charity events, advocacy and pro bono representation, Florida attorneys are to be lauded for giving back to those who need it the most.”

Tournament-day check-in begins at 6:30 a.m., range opens at 7 a.m. and there will be a shotgun start at 8 a.m. Kelley / Uustal will host a Tee-Off Happy Hour on Thursday, October 4 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at American Social on Las Olas.
