Hit the greens so future lawyers can hit the books
Tee off to help deserving students hoping to become lawyers. The second annual “Charity Open” will take place Oct. 19 at The President Country Club, 2300 Presidential Way in West Palm Beach.

Proceeds will benefit the Gerald A. Williams Esq. Law Academy Scholarship Fund at the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties, and the Gerald A. Williams Endowed Memorial Scholarship Fund at the University of Florida Levin College of Law.
“Last year’s inaugural event paved the way for this vision to become a reality,” said Carolyn L. Williams, founder and chairwoman of foundation. “We are hopeful that this year’s ‘Charity Open’ will help increase our community presence and giving in an even greater way.”

From being one of the first African American graduates of the University of Florida College of Law in1975, to being the first black inductee into its prestigious Heritage of Leadership Recognition Society in February 2012, Gerald’s professional and social accomplishments have made an historic impact across Florida.
