We are proud to announce that this coming Saturday, November 23, the Pasadena Bar Association will join Public Counsel in hosting a pro bono clinic at all Saints Church.

We invite and encourage all of our members to participate in the clinic, which will be in operation between 9 AM through 1 PM. If you would like to participate at the clinic, please RSVP to my assistant – Loxi, at loxi@pasadenalawoffice.com.  A short presentation will be provided by Public Counsel before the clinic opens, so we ask that all participants arrive no later than 8:00 am.  All Saints Church is located at 132 N. Euclid Ave., Pasadena.

Speaking of volunteer work, on Thursday December 5, 2013, at Pandora on Green, 33 West Green Street, Pasadena, during our Holiday Party, the association will present two lifetime achievement awards to Tom Beck and Gloria Pitzer (two of our long-term PBA members) for their exemplary volunteer service within the local community.  Please join us in recognizing and celebrating Tom and Gloria’s work.  If you plan on attending the Holiday Party, please RSVP to Michelle at info@pasadenabar.org.

I also ask that you consider joining our Exclusive Sponsor – ForensicGroup and the American Red Cross in providing relief to the victims of the Philippine Typhoon Haiyan .  This coming Wednesday (November 20th), the American Red Cross and PNB-Remittance Center, Inc. will receive monetary donations and donations for canned goods, non-perishable food, toiletries, and clothes at the Rose Bowl in front of Gate “A” entrance, from 5:00 am to 7:00 pm.

In addition, ForensicGroup, in partnership with American Red Cross, will match up to $10,000 of the monetary donations that is received.  Please contact Mercy Steenwyk  at mercy@forensisgroup.com, for further information on how you can help.

Thank you for your anticipated participation in the above-mentioned community outreach efforts and I look forward to seeing you all at the holiday party.
