YOUR HOST - Somerset County Bar Foundation
In 1969, the Board of Trustees of the Somerset County Bar Association recognized a need to further reach out to the public and local legal community to offer programs, services and funding. Formed as a separate, charitable organization from the Bar Association, it currently offers and supports a number of programs and fundraisers. The Foundation consists of a Board of Trustees who oversee activities, fundraising and the awarding of donations to local non-profit organizations, which are generally related to the law, and scholarships to deserving local New Jersey law school students.
YOUR EVENT TEAM - BestLife.Events
