The event was the largest Goldmark Luncheon in LFW’s 34-year history with almost 900 people in attendance. The luncheon raised a record breaking $404,000 for civil legal aid. For the first time corporate sponsors Alaska Airlines, the Seahawks, Expedia and Amazon joined Microsoft, T-Mobile, Starbucks, and many law firms in a strong showing of support to advance justice in Washington State.
Microsoft’s President and Chief Legal Officer Brad Smith (pictured above) delivered the luncheon’s keynote address, and proclaimed, “On November 8, 2016, we all got a new job. Our job is not ‘business as usual.’ Today, we must fight, advocate, and donate to ensure equal access to justice for all.”
We are honored to have recognized the Washington State Attorney General’s Office and Northwest Immigrant Rights Project with the 2018 Charles A. Goldmark Distinguished Service Award and Dick Manning with the 2018 President Award. Learn more about the 2018 awardees and past recipients.
