Approximately 200 people attended the multi-bar happy hour & fundraiser on April 21, 2011, at Mojo’s at Church Street Station. GOAABA and four other voluntary bars (Hispanic Bar, Paul C. Perkins Bar, Central Florida Association of Women Lawyers and the Central Florida Gay & Lesbian Bar Association) combined their efforts and raised over $2,500 from the silent auction and door donations. In addition, the Young Lawyers Section pledged a matching contribution of $2,500. Therefore, GOAABA and the other four bar associations will be donating a total of $5,000 to the American Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Tsunami fund.

GOAABA members and GOAABA law firms contributed approximately 2/3’s of all sponsorships. 100% of all funds raised at the April 21st fundraiser will go to the American Red Cross. For further information, contact Social Chair Lisa Gong at lisa.x.gong@gmail.com
