The San Diego Law Library Foundation’s annual fundraising event was a resounding success thanks to the event planners, helpers, contributors and sponsors. Many individuals and staff members worked hard to transform the law library into a festive Oktoberfest celebration. Also, various sponsors provided provided the beer, wine, awards and much more!

“This event and others like it are a key ingredient to the Law Library’s survival. We need community support like this and San Diego lawyers and judges really came through again for us this year,” commented John Adkins, Director of Libraries. The Witkin Award Dinner is held every year to honor excellence in the legal community and help raise funds for the law library.
