Second Annual Steve Boutin Golf Tournament a Sold-out Success

KHLF/Boutin Golf Tourney 2010

Supporters of King Hall, including faculty, alumni, students, and friends attended the 2nd Annual Steve Boutin Invitational Golf Tournament on Sunday, October 10.  The sold-out event was a benefit for the King Hall Legal Foundation (KHLF), a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting public interest legal work and ensuring that King Hall students are able to address the needs of those without adequate access to legal services.  The tournament is named for Steve Boutin '72, the former President of the King Hall Alumni Association and founder and principal of the prominent Sacramento firm, Boutin Jones.

Eighteen teams of 72 golfers hit the links at Wildhorse Golf Club in Davis.  Dean Kevin R. Johnson hit the ceremonial drive (with an exploding golf ball) to start the tournament. 

The winning team comprised Steve Boutin, Spyros Tseregounis (Professor of Engineering and husband of Chancellor Linda Katehi), Dr. Patrick McMenamin, and Steve Donnell.  Professor Dennis Ventry, a former UCLA varsity golfer, led his team, which included Professor Clay Tanaka, to a close second place finish. 

The tournament was followed by a lunch program, where Dean Kevin R. Johnson, Steve Boutin, and Professor Clay Tanaka addressed the attendees and thanked them for their support of KHLF.  

KHLF raises funds to encourage, enable and empower King Hall students to engage in vital public service work. In 2010, KHLF raised over $45,000 and awarded 10 Summer Public Interest Grants to first and second-year students, and 6 Bar Fellowships to graduating third-year students pursuing employment in the public interest.  In 2010, Summer Public Interest Grants funded over 4,000 hours of legal work at prominent legal aid agencies in California, nationally, and abroad.
