On October 14, 2015 CAIR Coalition joined with colleagues, partners, supporters, and friends for our annual gala celebrating our pro bono partners and the immigrant community we serve. We raised over $160,000 thanks to our generous event sponsors and guests who donated and bid on a multitude of live and silent auction items, including one-of-a-kind paintings.
Hosted by Jones Day and emceed by Armando Trull of WAMU, we proudly presented the following awards to honor those who zealously advocate for the rights of detained immigrants:
•Gibson Dunn, 2015 Law Firm of the Year
•Arent Fox, Detained Children’s Champion
•Charles P. Charpentier, Esq., Cooley LLP, Detained Immigrant Champion
•Todd Petit, Public Defender, Fairfax County, Community Advocate Award
•Bryan Kennedy, Assistant Public Defender, Fairfax County, Community Advocate Award
CAIR Coalition thanks all who joined us for this wonderful night of celebration!
