The 26th annual Quid Pro Bono Tournament on August 8 was one for the books! Not only did the tournament raise thousands of dollars critical to the sustainability of the Pro Bono Referral Program but the day also included a first-ever hole-in-one winner and the attendance of the Bar’s oldest living member — Judge Arthur Bean, 100, who was one of 96 players on the course. The tournament was dedicated to the longtime honorary tournament chair, Justice William F. Batchelder (fondly known as “Judge Batch”) who passed away earlier this year.

Congratulations to the winning team, with a score of 56: Mike Ruedig, Judge Steven McAuliffe, Doug Long, Doug Homan; and, to the hole-in-one contest winner of a new car, A.G. (Jerry) O’Neil, Jr.

It was a memorable day indeed at the Lake Sunapee County Club for the players, Pro Bono staff, volunteers, and sponsors who supported the fundraiser. Thank you!
