Simmons Employee Foundation, the law firm's non-profit organization dedicated to giving back to local communities, is holding its 5th annual charity golf tournament on September 18. The four-man scramble will be held at the Sunset Hills golf course in Edwardsville, Illinois. One-hundred percent of the net proceeds from the tournament will benefit local charity H.I.S.

The golf tournament will consist of two sessions, one at 8:00 and another at 1:30. The cost is $100 per person, or $400 per foursome, with an optional skins game. Mulligans may also be purchased. The prizes include cash for the first- and second-place teams in each of three flights. The tournament also offers three levels of game-play sponsorship as well as hole sponsorship. The registration form with specific sponsorship information can be downloaded from the Simmons firm website.
