James McFall Organizes San Antonio Golf Event to Raise Funds for Local Schools

April 19, 2017 | Spotlight

Earlier this month, the San Antonio-based Northeast Bridge Builders organization hosted its 1st Annual Golf Classic in an effort to benefit students in Northeast San Antonio. The event consisted of a golf tournament, silent auction, and live auction, and was held at the Windcrest Golf Course.

Jackson Walker, as well as several San Antonio-based companies and organizations, including Valero Energy Corp., Whataburger, Taco Cabana, Alamo Insurance Group, and N.E.I.S.D., sponsored or participated in the Golf Classic. The funds raised at the Golf Classic will be donated directly to Roosevelt High School and the elementary and middle schools that feed into it.

Jackson Walker attorney James McFall plays a key role in the Northeast Bridge Builders organization, serving as a member of its board and organizing a number of its community engagement and fundraising events. In 2015, he helped form the organization with a group of former student-athletes from his alma mater, Roosevelt High School.

Windcrest Mayor Alan Baxter is a dedicated supporter of the Northeast Bridge Builders, and played a central role in planning the Golf Classic.
