San Diego County Bar Foundation’s 20th Annual “Evening in La Jolla” Set for Sept. 23

“Most Fun Legal Event of the Year” Raises Funds to Provide
Legal Assistance to Locals in Need

SAN DIEGO (July 11, 2017) – Mark your calendar now – Saturday, Sept. 23 will be a fun-filled night at Birch Aquarium in La Jolla for the San Diego County Bar Foundation’s 20th annual “Evening in La Jolla.”

Celebrating two decades of giving back, the signature fundraising event for the San Diego legal community gathers the county’s most prestigious judges, lawyers and legal supporters to socialize and network, while enjoying an array of fine food stations and a full champagne bar.

Most importantly, everyone comes out to support the Foundation’s work, providing legal assistance to those in challenging circumstances, such as foster children and at-risk youth, domestic violence victims, sick and disabled individuals, refugees, and the elderly.

“The San Diego County Bar Foundation’s Evening in La Jolla is the most fun legal event of the year,” said Board President Micaela P. Banach of Noonan Lance Boyer & Banach LLP. “The Foundation’s vital work year-round helps provide San Diego’s underprivileged with the legal resources and education they need. Our annual gala raises money to support our work with fantastic food, drink, views and company.”

Evening in La Jolla also features a live band and lively conversation on the Birch Aquarium veranda as the sun sets, along with a carefully curated selection of reserve wines and exclusive experiences available in the silent auction and one-of-a-kind live auction items.

Benefiting grantees have included California Rural Legal Assistance, Casa Cornelia Law Center, Center for Community Solutions, Elder Law & Advocacy, Father Joe’s Villages, Jewish Family Service of San Diego and Think Dignity.
