Young Lawyers Holiday Party set for Dec. 6

Posted on October 11, 2013 by Chris Bonjean

ISBA YLD Holiday Party Please join us at the 16th Annual Holiday Party and show your support for the IBF/ YLD Children's Assistance Fund. Initially created to assist with the opening of children's waiting rooms in courthouses across the State of Illinois, the IBF/YLD Children's Assistance Fund has since grown, and now provides funding to organizations across the State of Illinois that provide legal assistance to children, maintain children's waiting rooms in courthouses, work to reduce recidivism of juveniles, and/or work to reduce the incidents of domestic violence in families with children. The YLD has raised more than $350,000.00 for the Children's Assistance Fund over the past fifteen years, due, in large part, to the widespread support and participation in our annual Holiday Party. We hope that you will help us continue this worthy tradition by joining us in person or, if you cannot attend, by contributing to the cause.

WHEN: Friday, December 6, 2013, 6:00pm-10:00pm

WHERE: Cubby Bear Lounge, 1059 W. Addison, Chicago, Illinois

WHAT: Open Bar, Warm Appetizers, and Live Music by Stache!
