Events with Impact

The annual events benefiting the Philadelphia Bar Foundation provide truly fun and meaningful opportunities for the legal community to come together for a great cause – equal access to justice for all. Through these events, many generous law firms, businesses and individuals help to raise the profile of the Foundation’s philanthropic efforts in support of nonprofit legal aid organizations. The legal aid network in Philadelphia depends on the funding generated through event sponsorships and ticket sales, and the publicity surrounding the events is important to increase awareness and understanding of these issues.

We greatly appreciate all who contribute to the success of our events!
