The American Patriots Ball

Celebrating and Empowering Our Nations Heros

Dear Veteran Supporter,

Because of dedicated advocates like you, Veterans Legal Institute has empowered thousands of homeless, disabled, at-risk, and low-income veterans across Southern California. Our local heroes have overcome barriers and restarted their civilian lives with the support of generous partners making pro bono legal services possible. Truly, your compassion will continue to drive VLI’s mission to increase access to housing, employment, education, and healthcare – one veteran and military family at a time.

To continue honoring and empowering our veterans and service members, we invite you to our inaugural charity gala, The American Patriots Ball, on September 22, 2018 at 5:30 pm at The Fashion Island Hotel in Newport Beach.

This inspirational evening will welcome hundreds of community and business leaders for dancing, dining, and an exciting live auction. We will be honoring these long-term partners who are perfect reflections of VLI’s mission:

Philip V. Brozenick, Deloitte - Veteran of the Year

Rochelle Karr, O’Melveny & Myers - Veteran Advocate of the Year

OC Women2Women - Community Partner of the Year
