CGLA’s 2016 “I Am Somebody” Gala

"I was proud to represent and celebrate the accomplishments of my organization - Cabrini Green Legal Aid! Close to 600 guests! Lots of money raised! Many tears, many laughs, many accolades! We honored the courage of our clients who experience barriers and hardships everyday; and we were able to demonstrate the impact we have! Over 7000 clients served this year! Thanks to all who were there - and for those who weren't, follow this link to take a glimpse into our work! And remember that there are always opportunities to VOLUNTEER or DONATE!"

- Esther Franco-Payne, Executive Director
