The gala is held annually to raise funds for the Austin Bar Foundation, the charitable arm of the Austin Bar Association. 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 by organizing and marshaling  the resources and abilities of the Austin Bar Association and its members.

Contributions to the Foundation Gala and the Fellows Program help fund a variety of service projects including the Veterans Assistance Programs, the Self-Represented Litigant Project at the Travis County Law Library and Self-Help Center, Austin Adoption Day, the CANLAW Clinic, the Justice Mack Kidd Fund, the Diversity Fellowship Program, the LGBT Law Student Scholarship, and grants to organizations such as American Gateways, Volunteer Legal Services, Austin Community Law Center, Texas Fair Defense Club, and many others.

Honoring Austin lawyers who have excelled in their profession and service to the community will be a highlight of the evening. The Foundation is pleased to announce this year’s award recipients.
