The Legal Aid Society's 37th Annual Awards Dinner, honoring Brad Karp, Chairman of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, as the 2014 Servant of Justice Award recipient, and Joshua Harris, Co-Founder and Chief Investment Officer of Apollo Global Management, as the recipent of the Theodore Roosevelt Award, was the most successful in the Society's history. The dinner was held last night at the Waldorf=Astoria.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Society’s Civil Practice, which annually provides comprehensive individual civil legal assistance that benefits some 120,000 vulnerable New Yorkers in all five boroughs of New York City, including senior citizens, children and adults with disabilities, survivors of domestic violence, immigrants, low-wage or unemployed workers, persons living with HIV/AIDS, and homeless and imminently homeless children and adults. In addition, the Society's law reform representation benefits all two million low-income children and adults in all five boroughs. The awards dinner proceeds are crucial to enable the Society's front-line staff in all five boroughs to provide essential civil legal aid in the midst of these challenging times for the vulnerable low-income families and individuals we represent.
