Pope McGlamry’s third annual “Teed Up for Torts” golf tournament was held at Bear’s Best golf club in Suwanee on May 1st. The tournament was held to benefit the International Women’s House.
The International Women’s House provides shelter and resources for families who have been victims of human trafficking, domestic violence and sexual assault, with a special focus on refugee and immigrant families. Clients and residents receive physical and mental health assessments, job training and placement, legal advocacy and many other services. The International Women’s House has helped families from over 50 countries on six continents.
Twelve teams made up of members of the Georgia legal community came together to compete and raise funds for a worthy cause. Although the day began with some strong wind and rain, that soon cleared and the day ended beautifully with clear blue skies on the course. Pope McGlamry extends its congratulations to the winning team, Secretariat, and its members: Eddie Newson, Graham Roberts, Cameron Hooper and Andy Ausband. Pope McGlamry also congratulates California Chrome and its members, James Deichert, Steve LaBriola, Bill Salinski and Hector Cora, who took second place. Eddie Newson, who had the utmost confidence in his own team, bet on Secretariat and received the Calcutta prize for the tournament of $1,825. Mr. Newson graciously donated a large portion of his winnings to the International Women’s House.
Michael L. McGlamry says that, “The $5,000 we raised will be a great help to the International Women’s House. We are enormously grateful to everybody who partnered and participated in this event.”
Kirk Pope added, “We are happy to see so much enthusiastic participation for such an important cause. We look forward to seeing everybody, along with new participants from the Georgia legal community, next year.”
