DBA’s premier party returns to its roots: DTC
2010 Barristers Benefit Ball
When:Saturday, May 1
Where: Denver Tech Center Hyatt Regency
Whose in the Spotlight this year? TBA — Metro Volunteer Lawyer heroes
Party hosts: Stacy Carpenter, John Baker, Aaron Bradford, Metro Volunteer Lawyers
Theme: Old Hollywood and the Citizen Lawyer
Drawing on an old Hollywood theme, the Barristers Benefit Ball will once again cast a spotlight on the importance of Metro Volunteer Lawyers in the Denver metro community. Every day, MVL handles some of the most difficult and personal cases for an extremely underserved population — low income and indigent clients.
Within the Old Hollywood theme, party patrons will celebrate great citizen lawyers, as led by DBA President John Baker and Metro Volunteer Lawyers, the DBA’s pro bono legal service program, epitomizes these citizen lawyer virtues with each case it handles.
With little notice, MVL provides skilled legal services to those who could not otherwise afford legal counsel. In addition to a great night with colleagues and friends, the Barristers Ball is the single largest source of funding for MVL’s challenging and necessary work. Denver area lawyers support is essential to MVL’s continued success.
