The largest crowd in its short history and the biggest amount of funds raised made the third Lunch and Laughs with a Legal Legend event a big success!
Held on Friday, September 13, 2013, at the Erickson Alumni Center in Morgantown, approximately 200 people generated $25,000 as U. S. District Court Judge Irene M. Keeley of Clarksburg was the honored guest for this “friendly roast”.  WVU College of Law Professor Emeritus Jack Bowman served as the Master of Ceremonies. The “roasters” were U. S. District Court Chief Judge John P. Bailey (Wheeling), entrepreneur Pat Bibbee (Charleston) and attorney Robert  M. Steptoe, Jr. (Bridgeport).
The following distinguished entities were Sponsors for this excellent endeavor-J. F. Allen Company/ Farmer, Cline and Campbell/ Jackson Kelly/ Kay, Casto and Chaney/ McNeer, Highland, McMunn and Varner/ Phillips Gardill, Kaiser and Altmeyer/ Spilman, Thomas and Battle/ Steptoe and Johnson/ Tenmile Land/ White Law Office/ the WV Bar Foundation/ the WVU College of Law and the WVU President’s Office. The final 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 for Bar Foundation grants to improve the administration of justice in the state.
It was definitely A Good Time for a Good Cause!
