By Gwen Remmen
The King County Bar Association and King County Bar Foundation celebrated the bar's Pro Bono Services volunteers and donors at their annual Recognition Event on October 29 at the Women's University Club.
KCBF President Mary Jo Newhouse and Pro Bono Services Director Threesa Milligan opened the awards program and on behalf of the bar expressed heartfelt thanks for all of the contributions made by the guests, volunteers and donors alike.
Attorney General Bob Ferguson, a longtime advocate for civil legal aid, continued the evening's message of gratitude with his uplifting remarks about the value of service.
Washington State Bar Association Access to Justice Board members Geoff Revelle and Dr. Marion Smith, Jr. presented the 2013 Access to Justice Leadership Award to Milligan in recognition of her dedicated work to building and promoting the development of a statewide integrated, non-duplicative, civil legal aid delivery system and expanding access to justice for those who face barriers.
Colleen Kinerk, PBS Committee chair, and Milligan presented eight outstanding volunteers with KCBA's Volunteer of the Year Award for their service to the bar's pro bono civil legal aid programs.
