Business, Events, Health

The King & Spalding Discovery Center’s annual golf tournament to raise money for blood cancer research was held on October 5th at the White Water Creek Country Club in Fayetteville. The event raised $36,500 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. This is the fourth year the organization has hosted the golf tournament. In the four years they have hosted the event, the event has raised more than $100,000 for the cause.

 

The golf tournament is called ‘The Polly’ after Polly Hatcher, a King & Spalding employee who lost her battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). The money raised at this year’s event will specifically be used to fund AML research through The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Sponsors of this year’s golf tournament were King & Spalding, TCDI and IKON.

King & Spalding’s Discovery Center, started in 1995, is dedicated solely to discovery, due diligence and other document related matters in the law field. The center consists of more than 180 professionals, including 150 full-time staff and project attorneys in addition to 14 paralegals and project assistants and 16 IT professionals working exclusively on discovery matters.

"We are so grateful to the employees of King & Spalding’s Discovery Center, the dedicated volunteers that put together the golf tournament and the participants of this year’s event for making such a significant in our fight against leukemia," said Dick Brown, executive director of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Georgia Chapter. "The money raised at the event is critical in our fight to cure blood cancers. Every four minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer and every ten minutes someone dies. Because of the dedication of so many individuals at this year’s golf tournament, we will make an impact on the lives of those touched by blood cancers."
