     Sponsorship Information

    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.

    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

    In that we are traveling to a foreign country whose culture, customs, habits and lifestyle may be different than those of the U.S., we wish to advise you that we cannot guarantee the availability of non-smoking rooms, wheelchair/handicap access, quality of service or noise restrictions. Music from nightclubs, other guests of the hotel and/or animals in their natural habitat, may produce noise at earlier or later hours than might be expected by us in the U.S., who may anticipate curfews and other regulations set by the hotels. If Festival Travel/HBA is made aware, prior to departure, of any fact or event that might affect the quiet enjoyment of your hotel accommodations, we will advise you in advance, so you may respond in the manner you see fit, up to and including cancellation of your reservation. Otherwise, please understand that once on site, Festival Travel/HBA cannot compel the hotel to change their customs and habits to suit our group's specific wishes; nor can the hotel be held financially responsible for any inconvenience or discomfort caused as a result of local cultural norms.
