The Black Women Lawyers Association is anything but new to The City of Angels. As a non-profit corporation founded in 1975 by a small group of African-American women, this community of women have held luncheons since its inception to award brilliant and passionate African-American women who are pursuing their law degree. Having met in 1975 to discuss the representation and needs of Black women in the legal field, The Black Women Lawyers ("BWL") Association of Los Angeles and its foundation have awarded more than $230,000 in scholarships and grants to second and third year law students.
As table centerpieces, we had flowers beautifully designed by Christina Bentley of Scarlet Flowers Designs. Guests dined on the delectable luncheon menu and enjoyed libations to get them in the mood for the spirited raffle. Cheesecake de Granger created the decadent cheesecake pops that awaited the guests at each table. We also had the pleasure of designing all of the gift baskets which were raffled off in order to raise money for future scholarship awards.
The attendees enjoyed themselves and money was raised for future scholarship awards. All in all, the event was a success! The memories were successfully captured by Debra Simmons of Diamond Dust Photography.
