As we reflect on yet another successful Annual Banquet, we want to thank all the donors to our Silent Auction. The Silent Auction was a tremendous success in raising funds for the Marutani Fellowship thanks to their generosity. Thank you for your support!

The Annual Banquet supports APABA-PA’s William M. Marutani Fellowship, established in 2003 to honor Judge Marutani’s legacy as a civil rights advocate, jurist, and pioneer in the law. Each year, law students who exhibit the same commitment to social justice as Judge Marutani are selected to receive this financial award in support of summer employment with a public interest organization or government agency. A significant portion of the proceeds from the Annual Banquet will go towards funding the Marutani Fellowship.

We hope that you will join us in making this event a success by becoming a sponsor and by attending our Annual Banquet. Please join us for a lovely evening featuring a one hour open bar during cocktail hour, silent auction, and a multi-course dinner catered by Sang Kee.
