Hello BALIF Members and Friends,
Happy post- Superbowl weekend! No matter who you were cheering for in this game, we can all walk away proud that the winning team has such a strong, vocal Marriage Equality advocate as Baltimore Ravens' linebacker, Brendon Ayanbadejo. "People from all walks of life, including gay and lesbian couples, want their children to be in stable homes and protected under the law. That's why I support marriage for gay and lesbian couples who want to make a lifetime commitment to each other." Thank you, Brendon.
We want you to join us, today, Tuesday, February 5th, at the Lookout for our monthly Happy Hour with a twist - Plus One. This time we are encouraging you to bring someone new. One of BALIF's more ambitious goals is increasing our membership to 1K because the more members we have, the stronger our voice as an organization! We have challenged you, our BALIF members, to refer your friends, colleagues, family members, etc, in the legal field who are LGBT to join BALIF. The person who refers the most new members (10 or more) will receive 4 Gala VIP tickets! Click here for details! Let the competition begin!
Speaking of BALIF's 33rd Annual Dinner and Awards Gala--Simply Fabulous - it is time to start planning your outfits and making sure that you or your firm have your sponsorship finalized.
