The Jim Neill Memorial Golf Tournament
Keeping Jim’s Spirit of Community Service Alive
Jim Neill was a partner in the international law firm of Davis Wright Tremaine, where he specialized in the hospitality industry. Jim sat on the boards of the Oregon Restaurant Association, Washington State Hotel and Lodging Association, the Academy of Hospitality Industry Attorneys, and co-founded the Alliance of Alcohol Industry Attorneys and Consultants.
Jim passed away at the age of 64 on September 1, 2010 after a courageous yearlong battle with brain cancer. Both his family and many close friends have chosen to honor his memory by marrying two of the activities he enjoyed most; golf and community service. In 2011, the Jim Neill Memorial Foundation was formed with the goal of hosting an annual golf tournament to benefit a Portland area non-profit organization.
The 10th Annual Jim Neill Memorial Golf Tournament will be hosted on Friday, August 7th at Eastmoreland Golf Course in Portland, Oregon. Leveraging our past success, the 2020 tournament promises a great day of golf, fun, food and prizes! The tournament will have a shotgun start, featuring a “Scramble” format. Immediately following golf, join other participants and benefactors for an Awards Luncheon and Silent Auction.
The 10th Annual Jim Neill Memorial Golf Tournament will support the Classroom Law Project. Classroom Law Project is a non-profit organization of individuals, educators, lawyers, and civic leaders building strong communities by teaching students to become active citizens. Classroom Law Project is Oregon’s leader in preparing youth to become active, engaged and informed participants in democratic society. In the 2018 – 19 school year, Classroom Law Project provided engaging professional development opportunities to over 1,300 teachers and a wide variety of challenging, fun programs to over 102,000 students all around Oregon.
