GAWL Sneaker Ball Raises Foundation Funds, Installs Board, Presents Awards

K&H is proud to have supported the Georgia Association For Women Lawyers (GAWL) at their spectacular Sneaker Ball earlier this month, commemorating 96 years of GAWL and its commitment to empowering women in law. The event featured Mistress of Ceremonies Deidra Dukes from FOX 5 Atlanta, WAGA-TV. Supporters and GAWL members had a wonderful night of mingling and dancing the night away in their sneakers.
