Hope you are well. We just wanted to follow-up regarding the the 9th Annual Corporate Counsel Initiative Gala, which will be held next Saturday, March 7, in Nashville at The Hermitage Hotel. CCPBI is a collaborative project between the Tennessee Bar Association and the Association of Corporate Counsel established to help foster a coordinated approach to pro bono work and support for the access to justice community in Tennessee.

Many thanks to the organizations that have already joined us as event sponsors, listed below. Sponsorship opportunities are still available and all event supporters will be recognized in the Gala program and TBA coverage of the event. We are finalizing our attendee list for the event and also wanted to send one more reminder about individual tickets, whether for you, colleagues who are not connected with sponsoring organizations or in honor of representatives from our legal services organizations. (Individual tickets are available for $200 each, full-table sponsorships start at $3,000 and donations are accepted in any amount. Please feel free to pass this information along to others who may be interested in attending this unique and meaningful event.) Please RSVP by close of business Monday, March 2 if you are planning on attending.

More information about the event is attached. We are thrilled to have Judge Bernice Donald of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals as keynote speaker at the Gala and the Memphis offices of law firm Wyatt Tarrant & Combs and global medical technology innovator Medtronic will both be recognized for their commitment to providing free legal service to Tennesseans. The cocktail reception begins at 6:00 p.m. and dinner will be served at 7:00p.m.
