The Black Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles (BWL) plans its Annual Thanksgiving Eve Cocktail Sip Fundraiser to support the nonprofit’s range of charitable and educational activities.


The event is set for Wednesday, November 24, at 6 p.m., at The East Angel, 670 S. Anderson St. in Los Angeles.  The theme, “24 Karat Magic,” complements the organization’s 202-2022 theme, “Bonded in Service, Advocacy and Commitment,” said according to BWL President Lisa M. McLean.


Proceeds from the event will help fund BWL’s continuing legal education (CLE) forums, law student and young lawyer mentorships, scholarship awards, and food and toy donations to groups that aid underserved families.

Both general admission and VIP tickets are available for donations ranging from $80 to $100 for BWL members and $90 to $120 for non-BWL members. VIP admission includes a swag gift bag, extra drink tickets, expedited check-in, special raffle and reserved seating.
