28th Annual Winetasting Celebrates Annual Campaign Donors [PHOTOS]


In our biggest venue yet, we took over the Delta Lounge at the Mercedes Benz Stadium for a record-breaking Winetasting celebration.

On November 7th, nearly 1,000 members of Atlanta’s legal community came together for our 28th Annual Winetasting.

A thank-you event for donors to the 2019 Annual Campaign, the festivities featured select wines from United Distributors, delicious food from BOLD, and a celebration of our community’s commitment to equal access to justice.

Funds raised for the Annual Campaign allow us to expand our mobile advocacy and place-based outreach efforts, provide comprehensive legal and holistic services to our clients, and recruit volunteers to bring free legal representation to low income Atlantans.

We extend our sincere gratitude to every single person who has made a contribution of any size to our organization this year. You are taking clear, tangible action to build a safer and more stable future for all Atlantans, and we couldn’t be more grateful.

We also would like to thank our Annual Campaign Steering Committee – including our Chairs, David Balser and Lizanne Thomas – for helping us reach toward our ambitious fundraising goals this year.

Thank you for standing with us!
