ALRP 28th Annual Reception a Great Success!

Thank you very much for helping to make the ALRP From the Heart 28th Annual Reception & Auction a great success.

Over 300 guests joined us on October 19 in the Green Room of the San Francisco War Memorial Building. During this special evening, ALRP honored those who have made a lasting difference in the lives of people with HIV/AIDS. ALRP raised over $140,000 from the reception and auction, with nearly 90% of proceeds going directly to support ALRP’s free legal services for people with HIV/AIDS.

This year, San Francisco Supervisor Scott Wiener presented the ALRP Clint Hockenberry Leadership Award to Thomas R. Burns, Esq.; the ALRP Attorney of the Year Award to Austin Schwing, Esq. of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, LLP; and the ALRP Firm of the Year Award to Saveri & Saveri, Inc. The awards were followed by a live auction presented by Bizzarros Gala Event Auctions.

The reception featured gourmet catered hors d’oeuvres by Laurel’s Catering, wine and beverages provided by Target, a silent and live auction, and great networking. ALRP also wishes to thank Springer-Sullivan & Roberts LLP for providing the lovely floral arrangements and Skona Advertising for designing the event materials. Advanced Discovery and U.S. Legal Support, Inc. were also reception sponsors.
