Heslin MCs at Pro Bono Awards

September 16, 2014

Moore & Van Allen Charlotte Member and Public Service Committee Chair Brian Heslin served as the Master of Ceremonies at the third annual Pro Bono Awards on September 16. The event is put on each year by Council for Children’s Rights (CFCR), Legal Services of Southern Piedmont (LSSP) and Legal Aid of North Carolina (LANC). It was established to honor the generosity of the attorneys and advocates with whom each organization partners over the course of the year-- in the past year, approximately 550 attorneys and advocates gave more than 6,400 pro bono hours to CFCR, LANC and LSSP, serving upwards of 1,300 local children, families and individuals in need. 

This year's event was held at Foundation for the Carolinas and drew a crowd of more than 300 local attorneys, judges, advocates and community members. Charlotte Mayor Dan Clodfelter commenced the awards presentation with welcome remarks and also recognized former Chief Justice Sarah Parker. A complete recap of the event can be seen here
