     q   To all of the dedicated raffle ticket sellers, donors,
         volunteers, prize gatherers and staff for the evening
         that made this event possible.

     q   This year marks the 15th anniversary of the charity
         auction. Fifteen years ago, when the Young Lawyers
         Committee began working with Project Northstar’s
         Homeless Children’s Tutorial Project, it decided to turn its
         December happy hour into a charity benefit.The first
         auction in 1990 was organized by an impressive team of
         young lawyers including Rudy Baca, Peter Shields,
         Brent Weingardt, Eric Malinen, Pam Cooper and
         Larry Roberts. Audrey Allison and Michelle Plotkin
         were the Young Lawyers Committee co-chairs at the
         time. By selling drinks, raffling off products from area
         businesses and using celebrity auctioneers to auction off
         “unique items such as lunch with esteemed members of
         the FCBA, government and industry,” the Young Lawyers
         Committee raised $4,075 for Project Northstar from
         that first auction.

     q   Thank you for attending the 15th Annual Charity
         Auction and supporting our efforts on behalf of The
         Charitable Coalition for Children with Cancer.
