Making equal justice happen for vulnerable children and families in Omaha is serious business… but supporting it doesn’t have to be!

Join with Legal Aid of Nebraska this fall, as we get gnarly and “Ride the Wave of Justice!” Swinging a club or rocking one, this fall you can show your support for Legal Aid’s critically important work by jumping aboard the wave and sponsoring Legal Aid’s first surf-themed, hang ten double dose of fun.

As they say, life’s a beach, and Ride the Wave of Justice is stoked, dude!

Ride the Wave of Justice’s two upcoming surf-themed fall events provide sponsorship opportunities for your firm or company to share in Legal Aid’s goal of equal justice for all, with our growing network of avid supporters, professionals young and old, and local movers and shakers– and have a great time, too!

  • First up is Swing for Justice, presented by Fidelity National Title Group, on Friday, September 21, 2018, on the lush green fairways of Eagle Hills Golf Course in Papillion. Now in its sixth year, the annual Legal Aid golf scramble continues to draw fans of golf and justice, with over 100 golfers anticipated. After a day on the course, golfers will be treated to a beach-themed barbeque, giving sponsors a chance to “greet, meet and eat” and have a late summer day in the sun.
  • Then break out the flip flops and swim trunks (or maybe not, it is fall in Nebraska!) – it’s time for Justice Rocks! On Saturday, October 6, Legal Aid will host an alternative rock show at one of Omaha’s best concert venues, the Slowdown. Beer and wine will be hosted with liquor/mixed drinks available at the cash bar. Heavy hors d’oeuvres will also be served. Come enjoy food, drinks, prizes, and the opportunity to build connections with young lawyers and professionals in the Omaha area!

It’s a troubling fact: almost 9 out of 10 civil legal problems experienced by low-income families receive inadequate or no legal help. This is a big problem: landlord/tenant disputes, divorce or child-custody battles, unforeseen medical debt, and other seemingly simple yet critical unmet legal problems drive low-income families deeper into poverty.

It doesn’t have to be this way. At Legal Aid, we know our free legal help is often the one thing that stops and reverses this tragic course. Every year we help thousands of Omahans gain hope and opportunity, as we help so many children and families find the security and stability they so desperately need.

So please, come Ride the Wave of Justice with us! Your sponsorship of either or both of these fun events will directly support the high day-to-day costs of making equal justice happen for thousands of low-income Omahans.

Can’t decide which event to support? Sponsor both and get twice the exposure plus 20% off the total! To get the discount or sponsor Swing for Justice, return the forms by Monday, September 10.  The deadline to sponsor Justice Rocks! is Friday, September 28.

If you have any further questions, feel free to contact Joanne Hull anytime at her direct number, 402-933-2706, or at jhull@legalaidofnebraska.org. Sponsorship forms can be emailed or mailed to Legal Aid of Nebraska, Att: Development, 209 S 19th St., Ste 200, Omaha, NE 68102.

When low-income Omahans and Nebraskans have access to a lawyer to protect their rights, “equal justice” is more than just words, it is reality.

At Legal Aid, we ride this wave for justice every day- and this fall, let’s ride it together.

Thank you so much!
