annual Holiday Party & CHARITY auction
The Annual WLA Holiday Party & Charity Auction is one of WLA's signature events, connecting the organization with the legal community and assisting local charities through the WLA Foundation. New for 2019, the WLA is proud to announce we will host a Holiday Brunch on Saturday, December 7, 2019 at the Boathouse in Forest Park. Guests will enjoy brunch and drinks as they mingle with colleagues and friends during the holiday season. Guests also have the opportunity to participate in the WLA Foundation's silent and live auctions filled with items generously donated by our members and local businesses. Proceeds from the 2019 auctions will be donated to a charity or charities to be determined by the Holiday Brunch Committee. Click here for more information on this year's event and to register. If you would like to make a donation to the auction, please contact Jennifer Matthew at firstname.lastname@example.org or 314-365-7230.
