On January 30, 2014, The Philadelphia Bar Foundation and the Board of Trustees gathered with their distinguished guests to honor our first president, David Berger, Esq. at Berger and Montague, P.C. This event was one of 50 events the Foundation is having to celebrate its 50 years in existence and to assure another 50 years. The guests were welcomed by our President, Deborah R. Gross, Esq. who introduced Scott Reich, Esq., the author of Power of Citizenship: Why JFK Matters to Citizenship and Public Service, which speaks to the “need for a rededication to the tenets of good citizenship.” “Being a good citizen requires us to do something for someone else.” These are the same ideals by which David Berger lived, and by which the Foundation operates, since as lawyers, we are guardians of the legal system and one of our responsibilities is ensuring equal access to justice. We would like to extend a special thank you to our hosts for the evening, Berger & Montague, P.C. Berger & Montague has been a long-time supporter of the Philadelphia Bar Foundation. Dave Berger was the first President of the Foundation, Sherrie Savett was a trustee, the firm has directed a number of cy pres awards to the Foundation, and Judge Harold Berger, Laddie Montague, and Sherrie Savett are Andrew Hamilton Circle members.
