Ms. JD’s Fourth Annual Global Education Fund Cocktail Benefit

Join Ms. JD and Bay Area Law Firm Bands For Ms. JD's Fourth Annual Cocktail Benefit!

On August 22, 2016, Ms. JD’s Global Education Fund (GEF) will host its Fourth Annual Cocktail Benefit to raise funds to support the scholarship of eight inspiring women law scholars at Uganda’s Makerere University. 

This event will feature live music by bands from your favorite Bay Area law firms, and a silent auction. Hors d’oeuvres will be served. Each attendee will be provided one drink ticket and additional drinks may be purchased. Auctions items include:

  • A pair of tickets to the San Francisco Opera
  • A gift certificate for a sailboat tour for 2 with AdventureCat Sailing Charters
  • A pair of tickets to the Smuin Ballet
  • 5-days, 4-nights resort accommodations in Cancun from Sunset Vacations

Discounted tickets are available for students and nonprofit employees. Discounted early-bird regular admission tickets are available until August 16, 2016. Donations to GEF can also be made here.

GEF enables women in developing countries to pursue legal educations who would otherwise lack access to higher education, and partners with Makerere University in Uganda, where men are more than twice as likely as women to have access to higher education.

GEF is staffed entirely by volunteers.  Every dollar raised is dedicated to funding tuition, housing, and other educational needs of the scholars in Uganda.  And, there is a matching grant: For every two law scholars sponsored by GEF, the Carnegie Corporation matches the grant and sponsors six more!
