Every year, our firm takes an afternoon off in August and we go golfing. Some of us are certainly more polished golfers than others (and some of us certainly take more swings than others), but skill and stamina aren’t really the point of this event.
This outing has been going on for 20 years and was started by Attorney Steve Dozer shortly after he joined McCarty Law in 1996. After Steve passed away from brain cancer in 2003, we donned the event “The Dozer Cup” the following year. Our traveling trophy features his athletic cup, so we literally play for Dozer’s cup every year in his honor.
The event always takes place at scenic Fox Valley Golf Club and is followed by a delicious dinner in the clubhouse. They (and Club Member/Master of Ceremonies Attorney Steve Cerasoli) are outstanding hosts, and this year, we had a record turnout of 16 golfers and 28 diners.
In fact, Dozer’s Cup 2018 was even more memorable because Steve’s daughter, Emilie, participated for the first time, and his younger daughter, Lily, joined us for dinner. While the weather wasn’t exactly ideal for golfing this year, we still achieved our goal: lots of fun and laughter in memory of a late friend.
