Pro Bono Partnership 2018 Gala Highlights

Thank you to the 700+ supporters who celebrated the Partnership’s 21st Anniversary in person at Cipriani, or in spirit! Because of your generosity, we exceeded our goal of raising $1.8 million for the free legal help and educational programs Pro Bono Partnership provides to nonprofits in Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York.
We proudly honored two Champions of Pro Bono and longtime supporters of the Partnership, the Aetna Law & Regulatory Affairs Department and Thomas J. Reid, Managing Partner at Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP.

To learn more about these honorees and their deep commitment to pro bono, see the videos in their honor that were shown at the gala: Tom Reid and Aetna Inc.

I would also like to give special thanks to our Dinner Chairs, Kimberley D. Harris, Executive Vice President and General Counsel, NBCUniversal Media LLC and Thomas J. Sabatino, Jr., Executive Vice President and General Counsel, Aetna Inc.; the Steering Committee; the Gala Committee, led by Jonathan Mothner; the dedicated Pro Bono Partnership Board of Directors; and our clients, Ann Marie Puente and Alexandra Villano from Greyston Foundation who shared how pro bono legal services made a significant impact on their organization and those they serve.

It was a remarkable evening, and one that I am so pleased to have been a part of. Thank you, again, for your support of Pro Bono Partnership and our mission to provide free legal services to tristate-area nonprofits!
