The Barrister’s Ball is the Student Bar Association’s (which is comprised of students from both the Grand Rapids campus and the Kalamazoo site) largest fundraising event. This year’s event was held at Watermark Country Club in Grand Rapids and was attended by nearly 150 law students, faculty, staff, attorneys and business leaders.

“This is our third year choosing Hospice of Michigan’s Anchors Pediatric Program as beneficiary of the Barrister’s Ball,” said SBA Vice President Wil Antonides, who organized the event with Kevin Dennis. “The Student Bar Association not only organizes important events to help our law students develop as future attorneys, but we are active in our community supporting those in need.” 

Hospice of Michigan’s 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.
