Law School Students Raise Funds for Pediatric Hospice Program

On Saturday, Oct. 3, the West Michigan Student Bar Association at WMU-Cooley Law School’s Grand Rapids campus held its annual Barrister’s Ball. The annual event, which was held at Grand Rapids’ J.W. Marriott, was the kick-off for the organization’s philanthropy fundraising efforts. Over $900 was raised during the Barrister’s Ball for Hospice of Michigan’s Anchors Pediatric Program.

Each year, the Barrister’s Ball is the Student Bar Association’s largest fundraising event. Due to COVID-19 precautions this year’s event was limited in size and was attended by nearly 62 law students, faculty, staff, attorneys and business leaders.

This is the fourth year that Hospice of Michigan’s Anchors Pediatric Program has been the recipient of donations from the Student Bar Association’s fundraising efforts. The Anchors program offers various services for terminally ill children and their families including comfort care, nursing, and emotional and grief support.  It is the only pediatric Hospice program in the area and is only one of a few across the country.
