As a female-owned business, strengthening the community of strong, positive-minded women is important.

In addition, there will be a live interactive fiber art, as well as live music. Please note that this is a strictly 21 and older celebration.

The Lawyers Club Fund for Justice was created in 1997 and is a charitable foundation arm that serves to reach out to the community, in particular to serve “at-risk” women. The Lawyers Club Fund for Justice is managed through a donor-advised fund at The San Diego Foundation and addresses, through nonprofit education, research, funding, and programming, various social issues present in San Diego County consistent with Lawyers Club’s mission. In addition, the Fund is utilized to facilitate volunteerism and community service by members of Lawyers Club and to bring positive public attention to the efforts of its members and lawyers in general in service to the community. The Fund represents a powerful and direct action tool for Lawyers Club to effect social change within our immediate community for the collective good.
