The Dominican Bar Association 16th Annual Scholarship Gala will honor two individuals, and a law firm, that have made noteworthy contributions to the Latino community while raising scholarship funds for deserving law students. This year, our organization will honor the Honorable Faviola A. Soto of the New York Court of Claims and Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes. The DBA will also recognize Morrison & Forrester, LLP for its unwavering support of the DBA and the Latino legal community.
The revenue from the Gala enables the DBA to continue to carry out its core mission―namely, to promote the advancement of Latinos within the legal community and empower the Latino community at large. It is because of the generous support of organizations such as yours that the DBA―a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization―has been able to put on a variety of programming and offer annual scholarships to deserving law students of color. This year we hope we can count on your support to make our 16th Annual Scholarship Gala an even bigger success!
