 About the Annual Gala: 

The Brooklyn Bar Association Volunteer Lawyers Project (VLP) Annual Gala – the organization’s premier fundraising event – celebrates and honors the work of extraordinary individuals who have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to serving the public good and equal justice. Funds raised strengthen the vital work of the VLP, including direct legal services, innovative legal education and outreach programs in consumer debt, foreclosure, immigration, family law and elder law, as well as the training and supervision of volunteer attorneys from the private bar to assist thousands of Brooklyn families and individuals facing life-altering legal challenges.
