More than 50 lawyers, judges, court personnel and county employees gathered on the Mezzanine Level in the Circuit Court Building for the annual Young Lawyer’s Holiday Lunch on Thursday, December 11, 2014. This year saw a few changes to the holiday lunch as the event benefited Toys for Tots, and attendees were asked to bring an unwrapped toy or a donation of $10.00 for the charity. This was a switch from previous years when members were asked to donate books. The Association collected three large boxes of toys that were donated to Toys for Tots, and received $420.00 in monetary donations. All of the money was turned over to the charity after the event was completed.
One of the event highlights was the delicious food that was donated by a number of local businesses. This year we received food donations from Café Troia, Court Towers Café, Jake’s Deli, Pecora’s Deli, S&J Crab Ranch, The Green Turtle, The Rec Room, and Towson Hot Bagels. The business community was so generous with their donations that there was a large amount of food that was left over from the event, and that food was taken to Our Daily Bread in Baltimore City and was distributed to deserving individuals.
The Young Lawyers Committee wishes to thank everyone who attended the Holiday Lunch, and we are looking forward to seeing everyone at the Young Lawyer’s Bull Roast on Sunday, March 1, 2014 at the Towson American Legion.
