A friend and former colleague, Sheila, emailed me in her capacity as secretary for the South Asian Bar Association of Northern California Foundation and asked me if I might have a piece to donate for the silent auction at their annual gala, which was held yesterday at the Green Room in San Francisco. A large number of attorneys and other professionals will attend and bid on various items and services at the silent auction. Sheila told me that the items and services were donated by prominent individuals and businesses. All proceeds raised fund public interest fellowships for Bay Area law students.
While I don’t really think that the world needs more lawyers, I do think that scholarships are important and it isn’t up to me to decide how people spend their lives. It also made me feel good to be considered a “prominent individual.” It will be interesting to see where House and Garden goes on its journey.
