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 golf tournament is called ‘The Polly’ after Polly Hatcher, a King & Spalding employee who lost her battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).
