Lawyers Club awards $16,000 in grants, scholarships

Lawyers Club of San Diego presented grants totaling $16,000 to three local nonprofit organizations and awarded three law student scholarships at its annual holiday luncheon Dec. 13.

Lawyers Club, through its Fund for Justice, awarded grants to Voices for Children in support of its infant and toddler program, to Casa Cornelia Law Center in support of its programs helping provide pro bono legal services to indigent immigrants in the San Diego community, and to the San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program in support of its domestic violence clinic and the annual Women’s Resource Fair.

Lawyers Club also collected more than $10,000 in donations at the holiday luncheon to support future grants awarded by the Fund for Justice.

Lawyers Club also presented scholarships to students from each of the three area law schools at the holiday luncheon, recognizing students who embody the mission of Lawyers Club.

Scholarship winners included Darlene Rabina, a third-year student at the University of San Diego School of Law; Melissa Mack, a second-year student at California Western School of Law; and Amy Loutit, a second-year student at Thomas Jefferson School of Law.

The Fund for Justice awarded its first grant in March 2000 and since then has provided 59 grants to 22 different organizations. More than $239,000 has been donated to the Lawyers Club Fund for Justice through contributions by individuals and through the support of past Lawyers Club events.

The next fundraising event, “Red, White and Brew,” a wine and beer tasting, will be held Jan. 31, 2013, at the San Diego Wine & Culinary Center.
