About the Event

We will be offering several sponsorship opportunities and recognize event sponsors on all web and print material related to the event. Firm and corporate sponsorships start at $2,500 and all funds raised go towards PILI’s Programs. Though the initial sponsorship deadline has passed, we are still accepting sponsorships for this event.


Every year, PILI presents several awards to acknowledge lawyers and legal programs whose dedication to service, fairness, and justice inspires us and makes us proud. The 2023 awardees will be recognized at the Annual Awards Luncheon on December 6th.
