The ABAS Law Foundation will be holding its 12th Annual Wine & Food Tasting Event.  The Foundation’s annual event always makes for a pleasant and fun-filled evening, with delicious drinks and food, an excellent silent auction, delightful music, and wonderful company.  Most importantly, however, the proceeds the Foundation receives from the event go directly to providing much-needed scholarships to deserving local law students.  Our many friends in the wine and food communities will, we expect, make for another excellent event.

$35/ticket if purchased prior to April 25, 2014;
$40/ticket if purchased after April 25, 2014;
