What do the medical malpractice attorneys and support staff at the Indianapolis area law firm of Baker & Gilchrist know about golf? They know that their sponsorship of a golf hole at the annual Good News Open at Hickory Stick Golf Club in Greenwood on June 9 helped in the ministry’s effort to raise more than $50,000 for Good News Ministries of Indianapolis.
The golf tournament is in its 23rd year as a fundraiser for Good News Ministries, which operates shelters for the homeless, programs for disadvantaged children, a health clinic for the uninsured, and a rescue home for troubled inner-city teen boys. Baker & Gilchrist has been a sponsor of the golf tournament for the past several years.
“We are glad to have the opportunity to support this Christian ministry that serves a significant need in the Indianapolis community,” says Caroline Gilchrist, a partner at Baker and Gilchrist. Caroline’s husband played in the tournament this year. “Good News Ministries allows our firm the opportunity to give back to the community, particularly by helping the most vulnerable among us.” We appreciate this ministry’s goal, which is to help needy individuals and families achieve independent living with a reliance on God.
Good News Ministries is in its seventh decade of serving the needy in the Indianapolis area, and Baker & Gilchrist’s dedicated attorneys have more than 60 years of combined litigation experience. That adds up to a lot of time spent improving the lives of people in the Hoosier State.
“Our mission is to provide A Hand Up to the Hopeless, and we know that is your mission as well,” the charity noted in a thank you letter to sponsors on its website.
Off the course, Baker & Gilchrist’s mission is to stand up for the rights of another vulnerable group of people ─ those who have been wrongfully injured in cases involving medical malpractice, nursing home abuse or neglect, and other tragic accidents.
