On March 22nd, Cleveland’s legal community joined the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association (CMBA) for their signature, annual event Rock the Foundation. For the past eight years the CMBA has hosted one of the best parties known to Cleveland, benefiting the programs supported by the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Foundation (CMBF), the charitable arm and partner of the CMBA. Between ticket sales, sponsorships and auctions, this event has generated more than $971,000 in funds since its inception.
The CMBF funds the justice for all pro bono and public service programs with the proceeds from event registration and sponsorships. The most renowned program of the CMBA that benefits from events is the award winning 3Rs program – Rights-Responsibilities-Realities. Bringing more than 500 volunteers from the Cleveland legal community, the 3R’s program sends the volunteers into 10th grade social studies classes to educate students on the U.S. Constitution and provide practical career counseling at a personal level.
The Rock the Foundation event was themed “Cleveland Rocks” this year and featured the band Shout, a huge crowd favorite in the Cleveland area. As always, the event featured plenty of great food, an open bar, raffles, and other fun activities making it one of the most renowned parties in the city. Avalon Document Services is proud to be a supporter and sponsor of the CMBA’s Rock the Foundation event. “This event is off the charts awesome!” says Kevin O’Donnell, Managing Partner of Avalon’s Cleveland office. “Avalon was more than happy to donate the printing of their event postcards and signage. We look forward to supporting and attending this event next year, and will continue to support the CMBA in their efforts year round.”
