The New Lawyers Committee (NLC) of the Oakland County Bar Association (OCBA) donated $9,500 to the Jacqueline E. Bayley Foundation, presenting representatives from the organization with a check during an on-field ceremony at Comerica Park in Detroit prior to the Tigers-Boston Red Sox game on Friday, June 6.
The Jacqueline E. Bayley Foundation (JEBF) is a local nonprofit organization committed to raising the awareness of ovarian cancer and supporting research through fundraising. It was founded in the honor of Jackie Bayley, a career attorney and graduate of the University of Michigan and Notre Dame, who lost her battle with ovarian cancer.
Taking part in the presentation were (right-to-left):
David Anderson (OCBA Treasurer), Geoff Brown (NLC Chair), Syeda Davidson (NLC Chair-Elect), Mick Kahaian (OCBA new lawyer), Dana Bennett (JEBF secretary), Eleanore Schroeder (JEBF president), Tigers mascot “Paws.”
The Oakland County Bar Association’s New Lawyer’s Committee is comprised of all OCBA members who have been practicing law for 10 years or less, conducting social and networking programs while encouraging outreach and involvement in the community and raising funds and awareness for charity.
The NLC coordinate several events throughout the year, donating proceeds to designated nonprofit organizations.
