I am very passionate about making time outside of the office to give back to the Delaware community, and it is a special day when I can combine my love for the law with my love of golf. That is why The Yeager Law Firm is an active supporter of the Combined Campaign for Justice, an organization that supports the work of the Community Legal Aid Society, Inc., Delaware Volunteer Legal Services, Inc. and Legal Services Corporation of Delaware, Inc. In 2014, these agencies provided free legal services in 4,640 cases, helping 11,112 low-income, elderly, and disabled individuals or members of their families have access to basic necessities, such as safe, affordable housing.
One of the organization’s annual fundraising events is the Combined Campaign Cup, a golf and tennis tournament with a reception and silent auction. The third annual event was held on July 27, 2015 at DuPont Country Club with over 180 participants. The Yeager Law Firm has been a sponsor every year since the event’s inception. Since 2014 I have also served as a Chair on the Executive Committee, helped organize the day’s events, managed the silent auction, and squeezed in 18 holes with my friends and colleagues. Needless to say, there was not a moment of downtime!
It was well worth the effort. The Combined Campaign Cup raised $24,200 after expenses this year, with 100% being donated to the Combined Campaign for Justice. That is a $5,000 increase from 2014. We are so proud of what these funds will mean for families in need of legal representation in Delaware. Check out some of the photos we snapped that day:
We’re already looking forward to next year’s event which will once again be held at DuPont Country Club. If you’re interested in participating as a sponsor or team, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
