La Raza Foundation 20th Anniversary Scholarship Dinner 2017

Friday, October 20, 2017 at 5:30 p.m.

At the Fairmont Hotel in Downtown San Jose

Please join us for the La Raza Lawyers Association of Santa Clara County’s 20th Annual Scholarship Dinner. The evening includes a cocktail reception, a 3-course dinner, the presentation of the scholarship awards and the La Raza Lawyers Association Lifetime Achievement Award, and dancing. All proceeds will benefit the La Raza Lawyers of Santa Clara County Charitable Foundation.

Latino/a Lawyers still only represent 7% of the State Bar and only 6% of those taking the bar exam each year in California, even though over 40% of Californians are Latino/a. Our profession needs greater diversity and supporting Latino/a Law Students in becoming successful lawyers is one important component.

Contributions in the past have helped us provide over $220,000 to benefit Bay Area Latino/a law students. Students receive awards based on their community involvement and financial need, among other factors.  Your financial contribution this year will help the Foundation serve its commitment to serve the community.

The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, Tax ID 59-3816862. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
