Gala 2014: Jeans and Jewels

The 2014 Gala is sold out!

You’re not going to want to miss this! In a break from our customary Gala format, we’re doing something new, exciting and fresh.

On Saturday, March 15, 2014, make plans to don your “jeans and jewels” for an evening of witty repartee, good food and amazing entertainment at the Shadowbox Live theater. The Shadowbox Live troupe, who are generously contributing an in-kind donation of $2,519 to the Foundation for 2014, will perform a special show just for us. We have rented the theater for the entire evening filled with music, laughter and spectacular entertainment. Join us for cocktails in the Backstage Bistro and then move into the theater for dinner and a show that will knock your socks off - all this followed by a private after party.

In another twist from previous years, we will have open seating, giving you the opportunity to mix and mingle with other friends and colleagues. If your firm wishes to be seated together, we will do our best to accommodate that request, but Shadowbox tables seat 4, 6 or 8 people. Seating is limited, so don’t be closed out.

The Jeans and Jewels Gala will support the Columbus Bar Foundation and further enable the Foundation to enhance the quality of life for many central Ohioans, and to promote access to justice in our local courts. The proceeds from the Gala will provide significant funding to further the mission of the Foundation which is to fund programs and projects that improve access to the courts, encourage greater professionalism, provide law school scholarships, and promote understanding of the law and the role of the legal profession. Through grants, the Foundation provides seed money and support for a variety of programs.
