The 68th Harvest Celebration raised $735,200 in underwriting to support pro bono legal services in Houston. The Harvest Celebration benefits the Houston Volunteer Lawyers, a project of the Houston Bar Association that assists low-income Houstonians including families, veterans, the elderly and disabled individuals with family law, consumer law, probate and other civil legal problems.
More than 800 Houston Bar Association (HBA) members and guests filled River Oaks Country Club on Nov. 13. Greeting guests were HBA President Alistair Dawson of Beck Redden LLP, and his wife, Wendy Dawson; Houston Bar Foundation Chair Travis Sales of Baker Botts LLP, and his wife, Sandy Sales; and HBA Auxiliary President Lisa Sharp, and her husband, Phillip Sharp of Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz, P.C.
