Benefit for Higher Education in Haiti - An Event Co-Sponsored by the ALA

On November 8, 2017, the Appellate Lawyers Association will be co-sponsoring an event titled “Benefit for Higher Education in Haiti” with the Haitian American Lawyers Association of Illinois, along with several other bar associations.

The event will take place at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago (151 East Wacker Drive). The reception begins at 5:30 p.m. followed by dinner and a program at 6:30 p.m.  All proceeds will benefit the United Council for Higher Education in Haiti, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization created by the legal community for the construction of a center for higher education in Haiti.
