Battle of the Bar Bands Rocked the Commodore
The much-anticipated Battle of the Bar Bands III was a resounding success on June 11. A sell-out crowd with more than 900 partiers in attendance rocked the Commodore Ballroom until morning.
The event was also a financial success, thanks to many generous sponsors, band members from firms, six Supreme Court Judges who again participated, CBC's Rick Cluff and the wonderful staff at the Commodore. This annual fundraiser allows the CBA Lawyers Benevolent Society to provide financial assistance to lawyers and their families in times of great need arising out of illness, disability or death. The Society is the only one of its kind in Canada.
The Event Committee, Derek Brindle, QC, Roger Holland, Thomas Woods, Z.S.A.’s Stephanie Hacksell, and J. Homenchuk thank the CBA and all those who participated in making this memorable event so successful. For details on next year’s event, please contact Derek Brindle, QC or Roger Holland.
