2014 Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Luncheon a Sold-Out Success!

Over 730 guests celebrated Dr. King’s legacy at KCBA’s Annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Luncheon on January 17, 2014, at the Seattle Sheraton Hotel.

The program featured Civil Rights Pioneer and Peace Activist, Ms. Diane Nash. Her keynote address - “Reflections on the Civil Rights Movement” - provided fascinating insight into Ms. Nash’s tireless efforts to promote racial justice and civil rights.

As part of the event, Jamila Johnson, a former Bar Scholar, asked attendees to consider giving to the Minority Law School Scholarship Fund. As a result of the attendees’ generosity, KCBF raised $7,000 for the King County Bar Foundation Scholarship Fund. Since 1970, KCBF has provided over $2 million dollars for the Minority Law School Scholarship Fund and 1,000 scholarship have been awarded to minority students at Washington State law schools. In 2013 alone, KCBF awarded $130,000 for students at Seattle University and University of Washington Law Schools.

Luncheon attendees were once again treated to a terrific musical performance by the Graham Hill Elementary School Chorus. In addition to the generous sponsorship support provided by many local law firms and organizations, the King County Bar Association gratefully acknowledges the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Luncheon Committee for their tireless work in making this program such a successful community event: Hon. Richard A. Jones, Co-Chair, Karen W. Murray, Co-Chair, Phillip H. Ginsberg, Bonnie J. Glenn, Justo Gonzalez, Hon. Charles V. Johnson, Ret., Kerry J. Keefe, James E. Lobsenz, Gregory M. Miller, Kevin A. Peck, Burns Petersen, Connie Proctor, Hon. Catherine D. Shaffer, Pallavi Mehta Wahi and Leann Wagele.
