As a reminder, the CBWLA Spring Luncheon 2021, previously set for March 17, 2021, has been postponed. We have a new date of March 23, 2022. This is the second time we have had to postpone our Spring Luncheon as a result of Covid-19. We contemplated a move to the summer of 2021, but we were concerned about whether we will have enough of the population vaccinated in time. As a result, we decided it was best to postpone until 2022.
We thank you for your continued support. As we stated previously, if you purchased a table for the luncheon, we will rollover your sponsorship to our 2022 Spring Luncheon unless we hear from you that you would prefer to have a refund of your sponsorship. Please contact us by April 15, 2021 if you prefer to have a refund.
Our Annual Spring Luncheon is our only fundraiser for the year. This fundraiser has become especially important since we began our CBWLA Scholarships in 2017. Despite not being able to hold our spring luncheon for two years now, we have continued to award scholarships to deserving students. In fact, this year we even established a new scholarship: The Ruth Bader Ginsburg Memorial Scholarship, which will be awarded to a law school student from the coastal bend. We hope that if you didn't purchase a table for 2020 or 2021, you will consider making a donation to either our CBWLA Scholarship Fund or the RBG Memorial Scholarship Fund. You can find more information about our scholarships on our website. Both scholarships are administered by the Coastal Bend Community Foundation. You can make donations directly to the Foundation in order to obtain a tax-deductible donation credit. You can also choose to make a donation directly to us via our Store site. Donations made to us directly are not tax deductible.
For those of you who are sponsors, we hope that you will continue your sponsorship towards our 2022 Spring Luncheon. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
