They’re still totaling up the take from the Justice for All Ball. But, given the economy, organizers of what is perennially one of the St. Louis legal community’s biggest charity event are happy.
Dan Glazier, executive director of Legal Services of Eastern Missouri, said that the about 600 ballgoers raised about $160,000, of which the net has not been determined.
Both numbers are down a bit from the record 2008 event, which drew 725 people to the Chase Park Plaza and brought in about $180,000.
“This amount in the economic climate that we’re in is fantastic,” Glazier said. “And it’s a wonderful testament to our friends in the legal community and other friends of Legal Services of Eastern Missouri.”
