ROIG Lawyers Sponsors the 2017 CABA Benefit & Installation Gala
ROIG Lawyers is a proud sponsor of the Cuban American Bar Association’s CABA 2017 Installation GALA taking place on January 28th from 7:00 pm to 2:00 am at the FIU Arena in Miami. This year’s theme, Avenue of Time, will “take you through the streets and scenes that gave birth to Cuba’s legends of yesteryear.”
The 2017 CABA GALA will benefit the Cuban American Bar Foundation’s (CABF) scholarship fund as well as the CABA Pro Bono Project. Established in 1995, CABF manages and promotes efforts to endow scholarships at Florida law schools.
“I am so proud of CABA and its legacy of helping law students throughout Florida through the foundation as well as their commitment to mentoring and pro bono work. Congrats and best of luck to the incoming officers. I am looking forward to a great night,” says Nelson C. Bellido, managing partner of ROIG’s Miami office and former director of CABA (2006—2013).
The Cuban American Bar Association is a non-profit voluntary bar association founded in 1974 by lawyers of Cuban descent. CABA’s members include judges, lawyers, and law students of all backgrounds interested in issues affecting the Cuban community, as well as broader legal and human rights issues impacting minority communities as a whole.
