Legal Aid’s Generous Associates Campaign Kicks Off Today!
Today is the first day of Legal Aid’s 23rd Annual Generous Associates Campaign. The Generous Associates Campaign is an extraordinary, peer-led fundraising effort that raises one fifth of Legal Aid’s operating budget. Last year’s record-breaking campaign brought in more than $780,000 to help Legal Aid make justice real for our client community.
Legal Aid is excited to announce that Patricia Millett of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP will be serving as the Campaign’s Honorary Chair for 2012. Pattie heads Akin Gump’s Supreme Court practice and co-heads the firm’s national appellate practice. Just last month, The Wall Street Journal noted that she has argued more cases before the United States Supreme Court than any woman in history. We are so proud that Pattie will be providing her leadership and look forward to her speaking out on behalf this year’s Campaign.
Please help make the Campaign a success at your firm. If your firm does not have a Campaign or if you simply have any questions about how the Campaign works, please email our Development Director, Gregg Kelley, at email@example.com, for more information.
