Justice for All: Celebrating Pro Bono event a success!
Thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s Justice for All: Celebrating Pro Bono event a success! It was truly heartwarming to have 200 attorneys and judges turn out to support pro bono legal services.
We were honored to celebrate our 30th anniversary and to recognize our volunteers. VLSC is the largest pro bono legal services provider in Alameda County assisting low-income residents through pro bono attorneys. Each year, more than 400 VLSC volunteers donate nearly 3,000 hours of pro bono legal services to more than 1,000 clients.
Event-goers enjoyed a delicious dinner and were inspired by UC Hastings College of the Law Chancellor and Dean Frank Wu's thoughtful and provocative keynote address. A few bidding wars even broke out over some of the amazing items up for grabs in the silent auction! Photos from the event are available to view here.
Our text-to-pledge campaign raised more than $3,600 in under two hours! The text-to-pledge line will remain open until August 21, 2013. Please help us reach our goal of $5,000! If you have not already donated, please make a pledge by texting VLSC, the amount you would like to donate, and your name to 41444. For example: VLSC 500 Joe Lawyer. Thank you to our many supporters who have already texted and donated! Please pass the text-to-pledge information on to your friends and colleagues.
Thank you again to our generous sponsors, without whom this event would not be possible!
