The 2014 Equal Justice After Hours was held Thursday, April 10 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at The Temple for Performing Arts in downtown Des Moines. This year’s event featured a reception with a short program highlighting the work of Iowa Legal Aid. The Master of Ceremonies for the program was Iowa Legal Aid Board of Director’s President, Alan O. Olson. The video shown at the event can be found HERE.
Thanks to the suggestion and efforts of Joe Feller, President-Elect of the ISBA, this year’s ISBA president’s challenge was structured a bit differently. It was a dollar-for-dollar challenge from individual members of the Board of Governors of the ISBA. Pledges from the Board of Governors totaled $4,050. The challenge raised a combined total of $13,506 in donations and pledges from attendees and the ISBA Board of Governors.
In addition to being an enjoyable evening, the event raised $140,671 to provide services to low-income Iowans. Our thanks to all of the sponsors and those who attended the 2014 edition of Equal Justice After Hours. A special thanks to Joe Feller for the ISBA Challenge.
