      Ladies & Gentlemen...

  Many apologies for the lack of an updated webpage. We did really well at the Spaghetti Fundraiser Dinner and raised $800.  Again thanks to all of you who helped out and came out in support!!  Quite a few opportunities this November so remember to keep an eye out for upcoming events.  We are also putting together a Public Interest Law Journal. Interested? read more below!


Have a Great Week!!

November's KJF Volunteer Opportunity

Together with Women In Law society we will be helping out at the Starlight Foundation...

When: Saturday, November 16th is a very busy day for Starlight.

Time: 9:00-12:00

Where: Entertaining Company - 1640 West Walnut Street (just west of Ashland and a block away from Lake)

What: They are baking 4,000 of our 7,000 pies. Those that are helping will be assembling the festive pie
boxes, counting them, marking whether they are for chocolate brownie pies, apple pies or pumpkin
pies. These folks will also be helping with the tissue and packing the pies. We will be helping at
Entertaining Company from 9 am to 5 pm. It is always fun here and a great team effort -- and the
smells are amazing from the kitchen -- tasting is always fun too. We need 10 to 15 people all day
