Article by Tish Browning — The Free Legal Aid Clinic (“FLAC”) held its 51st Annual Fundraiser on Saturday, April 16, and it was a tremendous success. FLAC is a student run, non-profit organization that provides free legal services to survivors of domestic violence and the elderly community in the metro-Detroit area, and JD Advising was grateful to be a part of the festivities!
Attorneys from JD Advising helped FLAC students organize their silent auction, and JD Advising was happy to donate two baskets to the auction and a gift certificate for a free, two-hour tutoring session! We enjoyed creating the baskets, which were a “Coffee Lovers Basket” that included a French press, gourmet coffee, and a number of other treats; and an “Italian Dinner Basket,” which contained everything the winner needed to create a delicious Italian meal, including a variety pastas, sauces, a colander, and even an apron.
The turnout was impressive, with attendees ranging from Wayne Law students to professors to members of the judiciary, and it was a great night for the event. The weather was warm, allowing attendees to enjoy the back yard, and The Cat’s Pajamas—a band consisting of five attorneys—were rockin’ as always.

Of course, our attorneys were on hand to enjoy the fun. JD Advising attorneys Meagan Jabbori and Tish Browning are both former members of FLAC’s 2014 Board of Directors, and they were happy to see that many of the members of their Board came out to support the organization. All in all, the event was a huge success and, not surprisingly, a fun time for all attendees!
