Concert Featuring Threefifty To Benefit Civil Practice

The Legal Aid Society’s New Leadership Program (NLP) will host a benefit concert featuring Brooklyn-based duo Threefifty on Thursday, January 22, 2015 at Stage 48, 605 West 48th Street. “The Legal Aid Society is excited to partner with Threefifty,” said Seymour W. James, Jr., the Attorney-in-Chief. “The Winter Benefit is an exciting musical opportunity that connects the band and its audience with Legal Aid’s important work to combat poverty in NYC and the many clients who still need our help.”

Tickets are on sale now at Threefifty also shares a close personal connection to Legal Aid. This past spring, guitarist Geremy Schulick’s father-in-law learned his assisted living facility was abruptly closing and would evict all 130 elderly residents within 90 days. The Society’s Civil Practice represented many of the residents in a lawsuit against Prospect Park Residence and The Department of Health for wrongful closure.

Geremy and his wife are grateful to the Society for “the incredible amount of help they offered in the face of such hardship and cruelty.” As a small token of gratitude, Geremy and Threefifty are delighted to participate in this benefit performance. The Winter Benefit Concert is Co-chaired by New Leadership Board Members Josh Kalish, General Counsel of Ingress Capital, and Liz Virga, an associate at Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCLoy LLP.
