Two Boxer & Gerson attorneys took to the links last week on the Monterey Peninsula to lend the firm’s support to the Teamsters Joint Council 7 All Charities Golf Tournament.
Managing Partner Justin Litvack and Partner Gary Lee (left to right above) teamed up for the 18-hole tour of Black Horse Golf Course, perched on the Pacific Ocean in the town of Seaside. They joined nearly 250 other union supporters in the Joint Council’s 10th annual golfing fundraiser.
Teamsters Joint Council 7 is comprised of 22 local unions representing more than 100,000 members in northern California, the Central Valley, and northern Nevada. The Council conducts regular fundraising activities not only to assist its immediate membership in times of need, but also in the wake of events that impact union members around the country. Boxer & Gerson served once again as hole sponsors for last week’s event, as it has in previous years.
The “scramble” format in which each duo of a foursome plays the best of their two shots forward is a favorite of charity golf tourneys, which usually attract working persons not given to regular or extensive time on the links. “Gary is a better golfer than I am, but I think the term ‘recreational golfer’ would be a fair representation of our abilities,” mused Litvack, who respectfully begged off providing a precise score for himself or his partner.
The day’s festivities were capped off by a gala evening banquet at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, which abuts the golf facility. Black Horse is a companion to the Bayonet Course, the previous iterations of which served military members and dignitaries visiting the former Fort Ord. Both 18-hole layouts have been extensively renovated over the years, and are consistently ranked among the top courses in California for beauty and playability.
