2017 Annual Gala

Celebrating Pro Bono Partnership’s 20th Anniversary

Pro Bono Partnership’s 2017 Annual Gala marks the Partnership’s 20th Anniversary of providing free legal services to nonprofit organizations in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, and we are thrilled to honor many in the legal community who have helped us make an incredible impact on the nonprofit sector!

This year, we are honoring Merck & Co., Inc. and Jami Wintz McKeon, Chair of the Firm, Morgan Lewis. Both are stalwart supporters of the Partnership, and they have both provided expert pro bono lawyers to advise our nonprofit clients for many years.

We are also presenting the Partnership’s first-ever Founders Awards to our long-time partner, General Electric Company, to our Founding Executive Director, Richard S. Hobish, and to the ACC Westchester/Southern Connecticut (formerly WESFACCA).

Hon. Jonathan Lippman (Ret.), Of Counsel, Latham & Watkins will receive a special Lifetime Pro Bono Award.

Dinner Chairs for the event include Ashley Watson, Senior Vice President and Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer, Merck & Co., Inc. and David G. Leitch, Global General Counsel, Bank of America.
