14th Annual Black & White Ball

The 14th Annual Black & White Ball was held March 7 in the Harbor Ballroom of the Manchester Grand Hyatt in downtown San Diego.

The event included a reception, silent auction, dinner and live auction, with DJ Earl and the After Dinner Lounge providing entertainment.

The Black & White Ball is a social event for the San Diego legal community, providing in-house counsel and the firms that support them an opportunity to socialize with one another while raising money in support of a deserving local charity.

This year, the San Diego Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) selected STAR/PAL as the beneficiary of the fundraising effort. STAR/PAL is a charitable arm of the San Diego Police Department dedicated to keeping kids in the community safe, in school, and away from crime and violence. STAR/PAL and its officers from the San Diego Police and County Probation Departments provide over 10,000 youth services annually to inner-city youth, all free of charge. STAR/PAL officers lead unique educational, athletic, and recreational programs in underserved communities, empowering at-risk youth to build a safer and more prosperous community by engaging with law enforcement and other collaborative partners. These children face poverty, neglect, family struggles, crime issues, and often abuse; but, by working together to promote continued funding of these life-changing youth programs, a positive impact can be made.

The ACC is the world’s largest organization serving the professional and business interests of in-house attorneys.
