TDCAF holds successful golf tournament

At September’s Annual Criminal and Civil Law Update, the 2009 Annual Golf Tournament hosted by the Texas District and County Attorneys Foundation (TDCAF) grossed over $11,000 in donations. Proceeds from the yearly event will benefit just a few of TDCAA’s programs, such as:

  • specialized training in areas such as DWI, domestic violence, and child sex abuse;
  • Prosecutor Trial Skills Course;
  • ethics;
  • Investigator School;
  • technology workshops;
  • Elected Prosecutor Conference; and
  • comprehensive victim/witness coordinator training, resources, and support.

Along with improving and strengthening TDCAA, TDCAF looks to improve the State of Texas as a whole.

The event was on Wednesday, September 23, at the North Shore Country Club in Portland. We would like to thank the more than 30 participants who braved the rain to support this year’s tournament, some of whom are pictured at left. A special thanks to Nelson Barnes and Mike Waldman, Assistant District Attorneys in Bell County, for organizing the teams, and to R.N. “Bobby” Bland, District Attorney in Ector County, for securing golf tournament donors.
