The final day of PILI’s virtual Annual Pro Bono Reception is today! As we said when we announced we were holding this event virtually, even in these challenging times, there is much to celebrate in terms of the life-changing pro bono work being performed across Illinois. We hope you agree that it has been a terrific week of celebration.
As we wrap up the celebration today, here is a special video message from John Bourke, Vice President of the PILI Board of Directors:
Like many nonprofits, we are facing financial uncertainty due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Your support will ensure that we can maintain and grow our Pro Bono Program to help more people in need obtain access to justice. As John stated, we have a goal to raise an additional $10,000 from individual donors as part of our Annual Pro Bono Reception. Won’t you make a donation today to help support our work and our mission to engage, inspire and empower those advancing equal access to justice? You can make a gift through our secure website at www.pili.org/donate or by texting “PILI” to 243-725. Any amount will help support our work and we are grateful for the support! There are also many other ways to get involved with our work. We hope you will join us in defining justice!
Thank you again to Chief Justice Anne Burke, ABA President Judy Perry Martinez, and Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul for joining us this week.
Thank you as well as to all of our generous sponsors for supporting PILI through this event and throughout the year. Especially in these challenging and uncertain times, your steadfast and unwavering support is most appreciated.
Congratulations again to all the members of the Pro Bono Recognition Roster and Pro Bono Volunteer Honor Roll! We are so very grateful for the pro bono leadership of those law firms and corporations we recognized, and for all of the individual volunteers who give of their time and talent in helping individuals, families and communities in need.
And, thank YOU for joining us this week and throughout the year to both define justice and help make it a reality for all.
