Lieff Cabraser’s The R-23s: Banding Together To End Domestic Violence 2017

Lieff Cabraser’s band, The R-23s, will be playing at the 5th annual attorney Battle-of-the-Bands fundraiser “Banding Together to End Domestic Violence” on June 14, 2017 at 1015 Folsom in San Francisco, California. This fundraiser will benefit the Family Violence Appellate Project (FVAP), a nonprofit organization that represents domestic violence survivors and their families before the California Court of Appeals.

At the event, bands made up of attorneys and employees from local law firms and corporate legal teams will compete on stage in 20-minutes sets. Five weeks before the event, starting at 12:00 noon on May 11th, there’s an extra fundraising challenge whose winner will get an extra 5 minutes of stage time at the June 14 show. Whichever band raises the most money in the one-week period from May 11 to May 18 will win that precious extra five minutes. The R-23s would love to put on an extra song or two, and so invite you to share your enthusiasm and your support dollars via the link on the event fundraising page.

This battle-of-the-bands fundraiser occurs annually and is held in both San Francisco and Los Angeles to support FVAP’s mission to keep domestic violence survivors safe and create legal precedents in favor of survivors throughout the state.
