The 2015 Equal Justice After Hours was held Thursday, March 26 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at The Temple for Performing Arts in downtown Des Moines. This year’s event featured the induction of Dave & Trudy Hurd into the Iowa Legal Aid Hall of Fame. The Master of Ceremonies for the program was Suku Radia, while Roxanne Conlin performed the induction ceremony. Click here to see photos from the event.
Thanks to the efforts of Bruce Walker, President-Elect of the ISBA, this year’s ISBA president challenge was structured a bit differently. It was a dollar-for-dollar challenge from Bruce Walker and individual members of the Board of Governors of the ISBA. Pledges from the Board of Governors totaled $5,800. The challenge raised $6,360 in donations and pledges from attendees and the ISBA Board of Governors.
Preliminary figures show that more than $145,000 was raised through sponsorships and donations.
