Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service


March 31, 2002|By Sloane Brown

The clatter of a game wheel, clicks of cards being shuffled, and the dull roar of conversation and laughter greeted guests as they entered the Baltimore Museum of Industry for Casino Night. Only this was a night with no losers, as these high rollers gambled for a good cause -- the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service. Some 200 folks tried their hand at various casino style games, noshed from the dinner buffet and caught up with friends. The biggest winner of the night, of course -- MVLS, which netted some $38,000.

Among those who helped up the ante: Jeanette Cole, event chair; Evan Feldman, Nicole Hewitt, Keli Isaacson, Stephanie Ketchum, Susan Spence, Steve Mandell and John Baldwin, event committee members; Don McPherson, MVLS board president; Michael A. Brown, Bonnie J. Butler, Jerry Lurie, Faye Pines and Steven D. Silverman; MVLS board members; Winnie Borden, MVLS executive director; Paul Gardner, Piper Rudnick associate; Nancy Alquist, Ballard Spahr Partner; Nancy Himes, American Express Tax & Business Services director; Brian Tracey, Bank of America Mid-Atlantic community development market executive; Dan Katz, Tydings & Rosenberg partner; Tomi Heirs, Enterprise Foundation program director; Alvin Katz, KAWG&T managing director; Randy Mersky, Global Express Money Orders CEO; Patrick Deering, RCM&D board chair; Tricia Thomas, Clifton Gunderson partner; Pam White, Maryland State Bar Association president; Chris Rosenthal, Ellin & Tucker partner; and Sally Gold, Baltimore area attorney.
