LATLC Golf Tournament Raises Money for Charity
On Monday, October 22, 2018, the 6th Annual Los Angeles Trial Lawyers’ Charities (LATLC) Golf Tournament was held at El Caballero Country Club in Tarzana, California. The El Caballero is a par 71 championship course designed by the legendary golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr.
The primary purpose of the LATLC is to make a positive difference in the quality of life for people in the greater Los Angeles area, focusing on issues related to education, children, survivors of abuse, persons with disabilities, and homelessness. We provide financial support and volunteer services to almost 70 organizations in the area, and have touched thousands of lives.
Andy Ellis, founding partner of Ellis Law Corporation, is proud to serve on the board of directors of the LATLC.
LATLC Has Raised Over $4 Million for the L.A. Community
Since LATLC started in 2006, it has raised over $4 million to the greater Los Angeles community in grants, gifts, and food. A partial list of the contributions includes:
- Food to the LA Mission, LA Food Bank, Food Bank of Southern California, and Delancey Street Foundation, totaling more than 848,000 meals (545,359 pounds of food).
- College scholarships. Thirty-seven high school seniors have been awarded $120,000 in scholarships for college, based on their academic achievement and need.
- LATLC Youth Sports Program. Roughly $100,000 in direct financial grants has been raised for over 90 organized youth sports groups and public high schools, sponsoring Little Leagues, softball teams, and baseball programs.
6th Annual LATLC Golf Tournament Was a Huge Success
While the amount raised by the 6th Annual LATLC Golf Tournament has not yet been tabulated, in 2017 approximately $555,685 in grants was raised, to be distributed to 50 nonprofit organizations. We also added 21 new partner charities, including PATH.
Thanks to everyone who turned out for the golf tournament! We could not have done any of this without the contributions of donors like you.
