Dear Friend and Supporter:

As incoming President of the Hispanic Bar Association of Orange County (HBA), I am honored to invite you to our 42nd Annual Gala Scholarship Fundraiser and Installation Dinner, on Saturday, March 7, 2020, at the Marriott in Irvine, California. Since its founding in 1970, the HBA has been committed to promoting access to education, the “bar”, and the judiciary for Latino lawyers in Orange County. 2020’s theme will be “2020: Visionaries for Equality & Opportunity”.

We hope you will join the 500 judges, attorneys, community leaders, and supporters who we expect will attend this celebration. The dinner will include installation of the 2020 HBA Board of Directors, recognition of our 2020 Wally Davis Scholarship recipients, and presentation of awards.

The Annual Dinner is the principal fundraiser for the Wally Davis Memorial Scholarship Fund. This scholarship fund was created over 21 years ago with the vision of developing the next generation of HBA leaders and Latino lawyers in Orange County. To date, we have awarded more than 70 scholarships to Latino law students with ties to Orange County who have demonstrated a commitment to helping the Latino community.

This Gala will be the must-attend event of the year and will sell out! Please be sure get your tickets early to avoid missing out on all the fun.

The success of this event relies heavily on your generosity. With your support, in the last five years alone we have been able to distribute almost $200,000 in scholarships to deserving law students. We are deeply thankful for your generous contributions and look forward to having you join us again this year. Enclosed are sponsorship forms for your consideration. Your early commitment assures recognition in the dinner program.

Please contact me at 714-971-8000 or via e-mail at if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for your support. I look forward to seeing you on March 7, 2020.

Warmest regards,

Bettina Yanez

2020 OCHBA President Elect
