BANG member Alexis P. Theriault will be the co-chair of the Boston Bar Foundation’s 8th annual Casino Night fundraising steering committee. Casino Night, which supports the M. Ellen Carpenter Fund and the Boston Bar Association’s Summer Jobs Program, will take place on Thursday, April 20, 2017 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at 16 Beacon Street.
Casino Night is one of the BBF’s most popular events. Over 200 lawyers and law students fill the BBA, which is turned into a two-story Casino, complete with a roulette wheel and craps, blackjack, and poker tables. Last year, sponsors and attendees raised over $45,000, allowing the BBA to place 58 Boston students in law firms throughout the city and the BBF to fund non-profit and government jobs for an additional 10 students. This year’s goal is to raise over $50,000.
