Standing Proud, BALIF's 34th Annual Gala is next week on February 28, 2014. If you haven't done so yet, now is the time to sponsor BALIF and purchase your tickets to the Gala ASAP. 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 2014 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. This year we are thrilled to be honoring Judge Vaughn Walker with the Legal Service Award and LYRIC, A San Francisco LGBTQQ Youth Organization with the Community Service Award. Please join us to celebrate the amazing progress our community has made over the past year.

When: Friday, February 28th from 6:30-11pm

Where: The Bently Reserve, 301 Battery St., San Francisco, California

Want to get the party started early? BALIF members and Gala attendees will be meeting at two different pre-party Gala locations: Blanc et Rouge and Bar 333. 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!
