Legal Aid Bureau

MARYLAND SCENE

June 06, 1999|By Sloane Brown

Members of the Legal Aid Bureau's Equal Justice Council started a new year of fund-raising at the organization's 1999 campaign kickoff and recognition breakfast, held in the banquet room at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

Among the 180 legal-minded early risers: Wilhelm Joseph Jr., Legal Aid Bureau's executive director; Warren Oliveri Jr., bureau board president; Decatur Miller and Paul Bekman, campaign chairs; John Eidleman and James Nolan, breakfast-committee chairs; Ben Civiletti, Pamila Brown and George McManus Jr., council members; and Judge Robert Bell, chief judge of the Maryland Court of Appeals.

The Equal Justice Council works to increase the Legal Aid Bureau's resources, and to spread the word about its services. The sunup soiree honored those involved in making the council's 1998 campaign a record-breaker; more than $250,000 was collected for its programs.
