Eleventh Annual Lunch & Laughs With a Legal Legend 

The West Virginia Bar Foundation's Board of Directors invites members of the judiciary, the legal profession, and the general public to attend the Eleventh Annual Lunch & Laughs with a Legal Legend on Friday, September 9, 2022, at the Erickson Alumni Center in Morgantown, beginning at 11:30 am.  A Zoom option is available for those who cannot attend in person.

This year's honored guest will be former WV Supreme Court Chief Justice

Margaret "Peggy" L. Workman  

Lunch & Laughs events are not to be missed.  Three "roasters" will have the opportunity to tell stories and tales about the Justice, with additional time afterwards for the Justice to respond.  The proceeds from the Lunch & Laughs event are divided between the honoree's selected charitable recipient, the WVU Child and Family Advocacy Clinic, and the WV Bar Foundation.

The Master of Ceremonies, John Canfield, will entertain us throughout the program while he introduces each of the roasters.  The three roasters are:

  • Dianna G. Canfield, Supreme Court of Appeals of WV
  • Honorable Joanna I. Tabit, Kanawha County Circuit Judge
  • Honorable Daniel P. O'Hanlon, Senior Status Circuit Judge

Table sponsorships of $2,000 are provided a reserved table with 10 seats.  Additional sponsorship packages are available.  Individual tickets can be purchased for $75.  Can't attend the in-person event?  Register for the online Zoom option, and 100% of your registration fee will go toward these philanthropic programs.

A majority of your in-person ticket cost is tax deductible, as the WV Bar Foundation is a qualified 501(c)(3) organization.  Please contact Tessa White at the WV Bar Foundation (304-394-4751 or tessa@wvbarfoundation.org) if you have any questions.
