When Atlanta plaintiffs attorney Sutton Slover was badly burned two years ago while clearing brush on his farm in Madison, the Grady Memorial Hospital Burn Unit saved his life. “He was in a coma for over two months,” said his father, Jack Slover, who is also an attorney but on the defense side at Downey & Cleveland. “Dr. Walter Ingram, the head of the burn unit, and the other doctors there saved him.” After a long convalescence and several major skin grafts, Sutton Slover recovered and is back to practicing law. To give back, the Slover family set up a nonprofit, the Slover Foundation, that organizes an annual golf tournament, the Scramble for Sutton, to benefit burn victims and their families at Grady. This year’s Scramble for Sutton is next Monday, July 16, at The Georgia Club in Statham, Georgia, between Winder and Athens. The golf club is located at 1050 Chancellors Drive. Registration and a silent auction start at 8 a.m. and the golfing begins at 9:30 a.m. Chick-fil-A is a sponsor, and there will be plenty of food, including Stripling’s barbecue. The entry fee is $100 per person or $400 per team, which includes green fees, a cart, T-shirt, lunch and a goody bag. Sponsorships also are available.
