21st Annual Pro Bono Reception—October 20, 2016
The 21st Annual Pro Bono Reception will be held on Thursday, October 20, 2016 from 5:30pm - 8:30pm at the Hart Theater Lounge at The Egg in downtown Albany. We will celebrate the work of The Legal Project’s many volunteers and supporters with a cocktail reception with a beer and wine open bar, and delicious selections from a variety of local restaurants as well as a wonderful Silent Auction and raffle. This is our major fundraiser for the year and 100% of the proceeds from the event will help support our pro bono programs, specifically our Domestic Violence Legal Connection.
There will be an Honorary Committee of community leaders who help support this event and The Legal Project programs, and registration for those members is $200. This membership includes two admissions to the event and a listing in the mailed invitation as well as in the Program Journal available the night of the event. In addition, Honorary Committee membership includes two complimentary admissions to the Pro Bono Awards Luncheon at The Century House on November 4, 2016. (Please also register for the luncheon event).
Single admissions for the Pro Bono Reception are $60 with a special price of $40 for non-profit employees and $35 for law/college students. Registration for both single tickets and the Honorary Committee can be done securely by credit card by clicking on the button below.
