Good Apple Dinner

The Good Apple

It was an amazing night at the Four Seasons’ ballroom to celebrate legal heroes and advocates who have made a difference in Texas. We honored A. Shonn Brown and the late Clarence B. Brown III with the J. Chrys Dougherty Good Apple Award for their devotion to advancing equity and for their incredible impact on the Dallas community and beyond. We also honored Deloitte and Enoch Kever PLLC with Pro Bono Leadership Awards for helping us spur positive change. Thank you to everyone who supported and attended this special evening.
