The Montgomery County Bar Association hosted its 6th Annual Charity Event last month, benefitting One Place Family Justice Center (OPFJC). OPFJC aids victims of domestic violence, child and elder abuse and sexual assault. The event was a resounding success with over 200 persons in attendance. Everyone enjoyed live music and great food, and had a good time with friends and colleagues. But the important thing is they raised money to benefit a deserving local organization that really helps folks. Along with sponsorships, the silent auction was the primary fundraising vehicle. This year, a live auction was added to spice up the event.
With the generous help of sponsors, the event raised over $35,000 to help OPFJC serve and defend the most vulnerable in our community. The event raised more money this year than in any other year in spite of the economic recession and the recent tornadoes that ravaged a large part of our state. Kendall Dunson, President of the Association, said he was very proud of the effort by Montgomery lawyers. He thanked all of those who participated, including the organizers, event planners, sponsors, auction item donators and attendees. Without the concerted efforts of all involved, the event would not have been successful.
In the near future, MCBA will partner with Montgomery’s Eastern Boulevard Chick-Fil-A to raise money in support of those affected by the recent tornadoes. Chick-Fil-A will designate a MCBA day and donate a portion of all receipts to the storm victims. The Association appreciates Chick-Fil-A’s willingness to reach out and help where it is so badly needed. Our profession requires all of us to serve our community and we should never forget that. There is no greater service than helping those who need it the most. If you have not done so already, I encourage all of our readers to donate your prayers, energy and money toward the tornado relief effort. Kendall has done a tremendous job as president of the MCBA. He has provided the type leadership needed to make sure our Association helps folks who need help.
