The Foundation will be hosting social gatherings across the state throughout the year; we will keep you posted on one near you in the future.

How is the Foundation helping this year?

With $12,500 in support from the Foundation, TDCAA hosted a three-day seminar in San Antonio targeting the unique role of prosecutors’ office personnel in combatting domestic violence. We are still looking for corporate and foundation partners from across the state to support the Domestic Violence Training Initiative in the future, so please contact Jennifer Vitera at [email protected] if you know of any possible sponsors.

    In addition, IBC Bank (through TDCAF) donated funds to pay for  John Kwasnoski to speak and his Little Red Book to be distributed to all attendees at the Advanced Trial Advocacy Course in Waco. Thank you, IBC Bank, for your generosity!

At the Annual

As you know, the TDCAA Annual Criminal & Civil Law Update will take place on September 19–21 in South Padre Island. We wanted to let you know about the exciting Foundation events planned during the three-day seminar.

    The 4th Annual Golf Tournament tees off at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, and that night at 6:00 p.m., the Foundation will host the opening reception at the Pearl (formerly the Sheraton Hotel). Also, don’t forget to stop by the Foundation booth Wednesday and Thursday to bid on silent auction items.

More golf tourney details

There is still time to register and sponsor! The Foundation Golf Tournament will take place Wednesday, September 19 at the South Padre Island Golf Club at 8:00 a.m. Please contact Jennifer Vitera at [email protected] to register or sponsor. Don’t forget to wear your craziest golf outfit—the winner will be acknowledged at the opening reception dinner that night. Funds raised through the golf tournament will support the 2012 Annual Campaign.

    Thanks to LGS, Alpha Capital Management,, and H.E. Bert Graham, sponsors of our golf tournament.
