October 4: South Asian Bar of Washington Annual Benefit Dinner

fundraising-basicsCome join us at our Annual Reception and fundraiser on Friday, October 4  at FareStart Restaurant in downtown Seattle.  The festivities will begin at 6pm, and the evening will include a South Asian inspired meal (including dessert), a full bar, and most importantly, the chance to unwind and spend time with old friends and make new ones.

This year, we will be honoring the achievements of the members of our legal community.  In particular, we will have a brief program featuring Judge Ketu Shah, Judge Susan Amini, Rep. Cyrus Habib, and Gaurab Bansal (former counsel for Obama for America).

This year’s event is on a Friday, and so we’ve invited a DJ and will be moving to an after-party nearby so that the fun can continue as long as you can!

Tickets are $65/person (and include food and one drink ticket).   Buy your tickets today!

100% of the profits from the Reception will be reinvested in SABAW’s programs, most notably our award winning scholarship program (which fund summer public interest grants!)  Learn more about SABAW here.
