“The highlight of the evening was hearing from two student models who described the challenges they’ve faced in life and the bright futures they have ahead because of the efforts of these two phenomenal charities,” said Henry Angelino, executive director at Higgs Fletcher & Mack. “This was my second year chairing the event steering committee and I’m glad everyone had a great time and enjoyed contributing to such a rewarding cause.”

The seven legal organizations that hosted the event included the San Diego Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators, Filipino American Lawyers of San Diego, International Legal Technology Association-San Diego, San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association, San Diego Legal Secretaries Association, San Diego Paralegal Association and the Tom Homann Law Association of San Diego.
