Children’s Law Center 2009 Kennedy Center Benefit Highlights

The sold out crowd at the ninth annual Helping Children Soar benefit enjoyed a beautiful evening on the Kennedy Center’s Roof Terrace Restaurant among fellow CLC supporters, advocates and leaders in the legal community. The Honorable Eric H. Holder, Jr. received the 2009 Distinguished Child Advocate award. Mr. Holder was recognized for his long time support of CLC and dedication to the District of Columiba’s children. Here are two great photos from this amazing event.
