This year’s 2017 PILA Gala will take place on Friday, April 7, 2017, from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. The event will be held at Manny Cantor Center in the Lower East Side, a gorgeous venue with outdoor views of lower Manhattan. As always, food, drinks, and entertainment will be provided all evening.
We are very excited to announce that our two honorees this year will be Seymour James, who heads Legal Aid Society, and Geoffrey Bickford, a 2008 CUNY School of Law alum who most recently worked in the New York City Criminal Court. We hope you will join us in celebrating the public interest careers of these two incredible individuals.
Stay tuned to this page. We will provide further information about our honorees, upcoming fundraising events, and purchasing tickets to the gala.
