BALIF Gala: Celebrating 35 Years! BALIF's 35th Annual Gala is on March 13, 2015. If you haven't done so yet, now is the time to sponsor BALIF and purchase your tickets to the Gala. This year's format is an elegant cocktail party with food stations and drinks sprinkled around the venue. It's a fabulous format for mingling with old friends and meeting new ones. Don't miss the best party of the year!

Your sponsorship of BALIF and ticket purchases will fund law student scholarships, mentor programs, CLE, Amicus briefs on LGBT issues, LGBT recruiting, social events to LGBT lawyers, community outreach, and much more. If your business or firm would still like to sponsor the Gala, it is not too late to take advantage of some of the many benefits of sponsorship, such as recognition through the end of 2015 on the BALIF website and newsletter, and complimentary tickets to the gala.

The Gala is BALIF's largest annual event with more than 600 attendees, including lawyers, judges, lawmakers, legal professionals, students, and in-house counsel.  Please join us to celebrate the amazing progress our community has made over the past year.

When: Friday, March 13th from 7:00-11pm

Where: Terra Gallery, 511 Harrison St., San Francisco, California

Want to get the party started early? BALIF members and Gala attendees will be meeting for a pre-party Gala location: Red Dog Restaurant and Bar, 303 2nd Street, San Francisco, CA 94107. Starting at 5:30 pm on the night of the Gala, please stop by for a pre-Gala cocktail, meet new friends, reconnect with old ones, and prepare yourself for the Gala!

We invite your Firm to sponsor BALIF, the oldest and largest LGBT Bar Association in the country, for 2015. Why support BALIF? This past year, BALIF’s sponsors helped BALIF deliver a whole host of meaningful and exciting events for its members and the community as a whole. Because of its donors, BALIF was able to host a successful annual gala, co-sponsor a number of worthwhile events, provide for its mentorship program, and deliver many networking opportunities and social gatherings for the community. BALIF’s efforts would not be possible without the support of its sponsors.

 

We hope that you will consider being a part of our wonderful group of sponsors.
