Celebrate the Season with SABA & SABF!

On Thursday, December 13, come enjoy a special meal with the San Antonio Bar Association and the San Antonio Bar Foundation at our annual holiday luncheon with special guest speaker, Rep. Joe Straus.
Rep. Joe Straus is the current Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives. He represents District 121, which comprises northeastern Bexar County, including part of San Antonio, Texas, and several surrounding communities. Straus joined the House after defeating fellow Republican Glenn Scott Starnes, later the city manager in Eagle Pass, Texas, in a special election held in February 2005.  Straus was first elected Speaker on January 13, 2009 and was elected to a second two-year term on January 11, 2011.

A lifelong San Antonian, Straus currently serves on the Board of Governors of the Cancer Therapy and Research Center as well as on the Texas Cord Blood Bank. Previously, he served on the board of directors of the San Antonio Zoological Society, the Texas Nature Conservancy, the Southwest School of Art and Craft, and the Winston School.
Attendees are encouraged to bring canned food or a monetary donation payable to the Harry H. Rogers Middle School Food Drive. Although the school is a Title I School, (which means that all students are entitled to free lunches) they sponsor 100 needy families for the holidays through donations of canned goods and monies to buy the turkeys. Checks should be made payable to: “Harry H. Rogers Middle School.”  Please write in the memo section: “James McFall Food Drive.”

As a special thank you, all attorneys who volunteered to “Just Take One” pro bono case through the Community Justice Program in 2011 are invited to enjoy a complimentary lunch at the holiday luncheon.  In order to attend free of charge, you must RSVP on or before December 12 and identify yourself as a CJP volunteer attorney.

The luncheon will take place at the Plaza Club, located on the 21st floor of the Frost Bank Tower.  The cost to attend is $25 for members and $30 for nonmembers.  Space will be limited, so please RSVP early!
