2016 Access to Justice Benefit

Logo for Benefit








THANK YOU for your generous support of The Access to Justice Benefit, helping those struggling with poverty, abuse, and discrimination to have access to the full range of legal services. The Bar Foundation greatly appreciates your generosity in support of our grants and technical assistance to the dozens of legal aid nonprofit organizations depending on these resources.

The event was a great success, as we recognized the important work of community leaders, enjoyed international gourmet food and exotic beverages from Catering By Design, and danced to the Big House Band.

Benefit Co-Chairs: Deborah R. Gross, Esq., Bar Association Chancellor-Elect, Kaufman, Coren & Ress, P.C.; Tricia Horter, Esq., Bar Foundation Trustee, Citizens Bank, N.A. (Host Committee members listed below)
