You are invited to the Las Vegas Chapter of the National Bar Association’s (LVNBA) 27th Annual Scholarship Gala.
In 1987, the LVNBA held its first Scholarship Gala, a very successful event that soon became a must-attend event for the Nevada legal community. Through the Annual Scholarship Gala the LVNBA raises scholarship funds each year for law students who are committed to serving minority, low income, and other underserved communities in Clark County, Nevada. Thanks to the generosity of member contributions, community supporters, law firm donations, and corporate sponsors, the LVNBA has been able to award tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships to law students over the past twenty-five years. Our scholarship recipients are employed in diverse settings, law firms, corporations, city and state agencies, as solo practitioners, and as elected officials.
This year’s LVNBA Annual Scholarship Gala will be held on Friday, November 4, 2016, at the Monte Carlo Las Vegas Resort and Casino, 3770 S. Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109.
In order to ensure the success of this year’s very important fundraiser, we are depending on contributions from supporters like you. Please help us to meet our goal of providing scholarships to very deserving law students again this year. To purchase tickets, please go to https://lvnbagala2016.eventbrite.com.
