Welcome to the Austin Bar Foundation!
Featured Foundation Program:
The Austin Bar Foundation hosts an annual Gala. This year's event will be Feb. 1, 2014, at the Four Seasons Hotel. Austin City Lawyers: Going Local with the Bar is the event theme. Silent and live auctions will feature a variety of exciting goods and services, and the evening will culminate in the performance of Austinite singer/songwriter Dale Watson.
The Gala also serves as an opportunity to honor the best and brightest of the Austin legal community. Pete Winstead and Dave Richards will be presented with the Distinguished Lawyer Awards, and Andrea Sloan will receive the David H. Walter Community Excellence Award.
The mission of the Austin Bar Foundation is to support and expand the provision of legal-related charitable and educational programs and services in Central Texas. Your tax-deductible contribution of $200 or $2,000 will help provide and support legal services to low-income Texans, legal education programs, and assistance to lawyers in need.
Fellows, Life Fellows, and Sustaining Fellows will be recognized annually in the Austin Lawyer publication. To become a Fellow, Life Fellow, or Sustaining Fellow, please click here for a form to complete and return to the Austin Bar Foundation.
