(BLACK PR WIRE) – WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The Gerald A. Williams Legacy Foundation Charity Open will take place on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at The President Country Club, 2300 Presidential Way, in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Proceeds from the Charity Open will benefit the Gerald A. Williams, Esq. Law Academy Scholarship Fund at the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties, and the Gerald A. Williams Endowed Memorial Scholarship Fund at the University of Florida Levin College of Law.

The Charity Open Host Committee includes members from the business, legal, academic and religious communities who are contributing time and resources to this worthwhile fundraising event in honor of the late Mr. Gerald A. Williams, a revered friend and colleague.

Heritage of Leadership inductees have a permanent place of recognition in the college’s Holland Hall, where their accomplishments and contributions to the state of Florida and the university are celebrated. As the first African-American inductee to the society, Mr. Williams’ work to improve the administration of justice and serve humanity will have a long-standing impact on future generations.
