Young Lawyers Section helps Red Cross raise hurricane funds

Issue December 2005

Members of the Young Lawyers Section Council teamed up with the Women's Bar Association, the Massachusetts chapter of the Federal Bar Association and the American Red Cross for a networking event to benefit the victims of hurricanes Katrina and Rita at the Elephant & Castle in Boston on Oct. 26.

Guest speakers at the event included Maryann Ponti from the Red Cross and Elizabeth McDonald from the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency. Proceeds from the event were donated to the Red Cross hurricane relief efforts.

Money was raised for hurricane victims through a silent auction.
