gerald-williams-web.jpgWEST PALM BEACH — The Gerald A. Williams Legacy Foundation Charity Open golf tournament will be played Saturday, Oct. 20, at The President Country Club, 2300 Presidential Way, West Palm Beach.

Proceeds from the game 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. 

Williams’ lifelong work in the areas of labor and employment law and public education helped to empower men and women throughout Florida.

In a legal career spanning more than 30 years, he was an inspiration to many teachers and students. He advocated for public education, serving as counsel to several school boards. 

In 1975, Williams was among the first black graduates of the University of Florida College of Law.

In honor of his distinguished leadership and contributions to the legal profession, government and education, on Feb. 2 the College Law Center Association Board of Trustees unanimously approved his induction into the University of Florida Levin College of Law Heritage of Leadership Recognition Society – the first black inductee.

Registration for the charity golf open is $150 per person and $500 for a foursome. Sponsorships at various levels are available.

For more information, call 1-877-252-2577 ext. 222.
