Happy July OCWLA Members!

I hope everyone had a festive July 4th! It was great starting the month with a day off and warm summer weather. Thank you to the more than 100 people who attended our Summer Membership Mixer at Zov’s on June 18. We raised over $1,000 for the OCWLA Foundation from our raffle, and our winners, Hillary Willett and Michael Balmages very generously donated their prizes back to the Foundation for our Gala silent auction.

We have some wonderful events coming up this summer. On Saturday, July 27, we will be hosting our Past Presidents’ Tea for members only at the beautiful Morning Lavender Café in Tustin. All members are welcome (not just past presidents), and limited spaces are still available. Please join us for delicious tea, scones, sandwiches and desserts as we celebrate our OCWLA past presidents.

Book Club will be on July 29 at Mimi’s Café in Tustin. The book is Passion in Black by Tim Buckley, Retired Associate Justice, Court of Appeal, Fifth District, who will be speaking at our Book Club!

Our Women Judges Reception will be held on August 29, at the Boardwalk Courtyard in Irvine. We will be celebrating the Honorable Elizabeth G. Macias as the recipient of CWL’s 2024 Joan Dempsey Klein Distinguished Jurist Award. Congratulations, Judge Macias!

Last, but not least, our Annual Gala will be held at the spectacular VEA Newport Beach on Thursday, October 17th. Please join us in honoring our OCWLA Award winners: Judge of the Year, the Honorable Desirae Hutchison, Attorney of the Year, Mei Tsang, Umberg Zipser and Advancement of Women Award Winner, Cox Castle & Nicholson LLPSponsorship opportunities are available, and we are still seeking silent auction donations. Please contact us for more information.
