Events

The Los Angeles Trial Lawyers’ Charities’ primary purpose is to make a positive difference in the quality of life for people within the greater Los Angeles area, focusing on issues related to education, children, survivors of abuse, persons with disabilities, and the homeless, by providing financial and direct assistance to needy persons and groups that meet our mission statement. We also publicize the good works that trial lawyers are doing to the local community in Los Angeles, through social media, press releases, photo opportunities, radio and other media outlets. Your single donation to the Los Angeles Trial Lawyer’ Charities has widespread impact as we work with more than 45 partner charities in the community. Your contribution is fully tax deductible as we are a 501c3 organization. Your involvement will strengthen our ability to make a positive and lasting impact on the communities where we reside and work. As part of our fundraising efforts we have two major events during the year.

The Event Committee Co-Chairs were Karina Lallande, Gerry Marcus and Dena Weiss. Besides the poker tournament, the evening included entertainment, DJ and Dancing, Mobile Spa including Manicures, Massages and Reflexology, Henna Artists, Tarot Card Readers, Fortune Tellers and Magicians. New for this year we added an entire floor below the hotel with a Speakeasy and a live band, Maria De La Vega and the Wayward Five. We also had a hosted bar, hors d'oeuvres, an amazing dinner and a Casino with blackjack, craps and roulette. Fabulous prizes were awarded to the top ten poker players. The Tournament Grand Prize was a Staples Center Suite including 12 tickets and 4 VIP valet parking passes for one 2016-17 season Los Angeles Clippers game. Our silent auction was incredible with nearly 200 items all donated by our wonderful supporters.
