19 years ago, the Boulder County Bar Association started a fundraiser called Food Wine Jazz Art to benefit Colorado Legal Services. While this event was a great success, recent cuts to the federal budget made us realize four years ago that we needed to rebrand our event to draw a larger crowd and raise even more money for legal services.
The 2018 Boulder County Justice For All Ball was the beginning of our new era. We kept the event geared toward the legal community, but expanded further to include partners, clients, and friends. We held the event on a weekend evening to accommodate those who find a weeknight event hard to attend and brought in members who have never attended a bar event. The event was a huge success.
This year, the pandemic has changed everything. The need for free legal services is greater than ever, but funding is reduced because many local municipalities are struggling. We debated whether to move the ball to a later date, but realized there are no guarantees.
With some creative thinking, we decided to hold the ball virtually. It will be a fantastic event with Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser giving the keynote address, and Colorado Supreme Court Justice Maria Berkenkotter speaking about the importance of legal services. We will also have music from Jessica Ahmed of the Diamond Orchestra and bluegrass music from AWD. We look forward to seeing you virtually at the Justice For All Ball!
Tickets are $25 per person. Registration for musical bingo has closed, but you are welcome to watch and listen to the fun!
