District Court Chief Judge John P. Bailey (Wheeling), entrepreneur Pat Bibbee (Charleston) and attorney Robert  M. Steptoe, Jr. (Bridgeport).                So far, the following distinguished entities have agreed to serve as Sponsors for this excellent endeavor-Jackson Kelly, Spilman, Thomas and Battle, Steptoe and Johnson, the WV Bar Foundation, and the WVU President’s Office.

The proceeds from this worthwhile activity will be shared by Judge Keeley’s designated choice of law student clinics at the WVU College of Law and Bar Foundation grants to improve the administration of justice in the state.  Sponsorships of $2,000 provide a reserved table with 10 seats. Individual tickets can be purchased for $60. Please contact the Bar Foundation to make reservations— tom@wvbarfoundation.org304-343-9823—P. O. 4845, Charleston, WV 25364.
