Thank you to everyone who joined us in person and virtually for the 2021 Equal Access to Justice Gala on September 22, 2021. The in-person reception was held at the Coveleigh Club where over 80 guests, for the first time in a while, enjoyed a true face-to-face networking event. The program was held in-person and online and can be seen here https://youtu.be/2jOSYkg5vRA.
Highlights of the evening included a keynote address from Congressman Mondaire Jones, and a welcome address by Deputy County Executive Ken Jenkins. The emcee for the evening was award winning news anchor and reporter Tara Rosenblum and among the dignitaries present were Senator Shelley Mayer and former Yonkers City Councilman John Murtagh. The event premiered a new video that features several clients and staff, which can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/tXKm77ZddwU, Teresa Santiago stepped up to the podium afterwards and told her full emotional story about fighting for extra home-care for her ailing mother during COVID and how LSHV attorney Patricia Angley wrapped her in support and fought to get her the help she needed.
Thanks to all of your support we have raised over $300,000 so far and there is still time to add your support through the link below.
