MVLS Celebrates 30 Years of Making Pro Bono Count
More than 300 guests filled CENTERSTAGE on May 11, 2011 to celebrate MVLS’ 30th Anniversary. Attendees included friends of MVLS from the business and legal communities. Sascha’s Catering provided delicious h’ors d’ouevres that guests enjoyed while shopping for silent auction items. Benefit Honorary Chair, Gregg L. Bernstein, Baltimore City State’s Attorney, offered brief remarks that recognized the important contribution the private bar makes in helping to ensure access to the courts for all Marylanders.
A special thanks to benefit co-chairs Robert Brennen and Caroline Ciraolo as well as the entire 30th Anniversary Benefit Committee for their hard work over the past year.
We would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to the 63 sponsors and many prize donors who gave so generously. They helped us exceed our fundraising goal by 100%, for which we are truly grateful.
