    Dear Friend and Supporter:

    As President of the Hispanic Bar Association of Orange County (HBA), I am honored to invite you to our 39th Annual Gala Scholarship Fundraiser and Installation Dinner, on Saturday, March 4, 2017, at the Marriott in Irvine, California.

    Since its founding in 1970, the HBA has been committed to promoting access to education and raising the next generation of HBA leaders and Latino lawyers in Orange County. In honor of those early HBA leaders and with an eye of supporting a new generation of Latino attorneys, this year’s theme is ‘Honoring our Past, Supporting our Future.’

    We hope you will join the 500 judges, attorneys, community leaders and supporters who we expect will attend this celebration on March 4, 2017. The dinner will include installation of the 2017 HBA Board of Directors by former HBA President and Superior Court Judge Salvador Sarmiento, recognition of our 2017 Wally Davis Scholarship recipients, and presentation of awards to the following outstanding honorees:

    Attorney of the Year
    Thomas Saenz
    Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund

    Guardián de Justicia
    Nicholas Academic Centers

    Hon. Francisco Briseño Lifetime Achievement Award
    Robert Cohen
    Legal Aid Society of Orange County

    Corporate Citizen
    Farmers Insurance

    Wally Davis Scholarship Recipients
    Mildred Lima-Gonzalez
    Loyola Law School
    Yamilet Medina
    Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law
    Gardenia Montero
    Western State University College of Law
    Brianna Ruiz
    Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law

    The Annual Dinner is the principal fundraiser for the Wally Davis Memorial Scholarship Fund. This scholarship fund was created over 20 years ago with the vision of developing the next generation of HBA leaders and Latino lawyers in Orange County. To date, we have awarded more than 70 scholarships to Latino law students with ties to Orange County who have demonstrated a commitment to
    helping the Latino community.

    This year’s event will commence with two-hours of casino-style gaming, an amazing dinner and program, followed by entertainment by La Sonora Dinamita for some dancing and additional gaming. This Gala will be the must-go-to event of the year. Last year’s dinner sold out, so be sure get your tickets early to avoid missing out on all the fun.

    The success of this event relies heavily on your generosity. With your support, in the last five years alone we have been able to distribute almost $200,000 in scholarships to deserving law students. We are deeply thankful for your generous contributions and look forward to having you join us again this year. Enclosed are sponsorship forms for your consideration. Your early commitment assures
    recognition in the dinner program.

    Please contact me at (949) 383-5568 or via email at edominguez@hirson.com if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for your support. I look forward to seeing you at the Annual Dinner on March 4th.

    Warmest regards,

    Eric M. Dominguez
    2017 HBA President
