Over 245 MoFo alumni and attorneys gathered in San Francisco on Wednesday, September 27 for the 2017 MoFo Northern California Alumni Reunion. Together they toasted their shared history and celebrated their collective achievements.
The reunion took place at The Exploratorium, a landmark museum that explores science, art and human perception. Located along the Embarcadero, the museum has spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay. The event featured access to many of the museum’s exhibits. Ben Davis, founder of Illuminate The Arts, also led a special presentation on the iconic The Bay Lights Project.
With over 1,280 members, MoFo Northern California Alumni apply their legal talents in a wide variety of ways at corporations, in the judiciary, government agencies and higher education, and some have even founded their own companies.
MoFo “helped provide the spark” for The Bay Lights Project
Illuminate Founder Ben Davis detailed how MoFo “helped provide the spark” for The Bay Lights Project by “just saying yes to generosity” and standing by Illuminate on its journey to making the project a reality. Davis explained how “MoFo’s generosity has helped make a huge transformation economically to San Francisco’s entire waterfront.”
Over a five-year period, MoFo attorneys, paralegals, and staff dedicated 1,800 pro bono hours to helping make The Bay Lights Project become a reality. Sculpted by artist Leo Villareal, The Bay Lights Project is now inspiring similar projects elsewhere in the world, including in New York and London.
