Jackie Dolan, Patti McGovern, Renne Bilson, and Dilys Garcia cross the finish line

Nearly 500 attendees participated in the Greater Los Angeles chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators’ (GLA ALA) annual Justice Jog run/walk 5K, on October 2, 2011. GLA ALA chose CASA of Los Angeles as the beneficiary of this year’s event which, along with ancillary activities, raised over $10,000!

The event brought together different sectors of the legal community, including our own counsel for CASA (headed by Cristine Reynaert and Ruby Wood of Goodwin Procter LLP), major LA-based law firms, businesses, athletes, members and friends.

The event is part of GLA ALA’s Community Challenge Weekend, a community service initiative that encourages the legal community to work together for a local community cause. Special kudos to Betty Freitag for her awesome fundraising efforts on behalf of “Team CASA.”

Almost every “Team CASA” donation was made in her name! And many thanks to Cristine Reynaert and Ruby Wood and “Team Goodwin” for awesome fundraising efforts above and beyond anyone’s expectations!
