Divinity of Matovu Consulting attended the Annual Thanksgiving Eve Cocktail Sip event hosted by Black Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles, Inc. (BWL), a non-profit corporation whose mission is dedicated to charitable, educational and community-based services. The spectacular charitable event was held at The W Hotel in Hollywood and was attended by the who’s who of LA legal professionals, including attorneys, judges, law professors and students.
Fred Dorton of The DFirm co-sponsored the event which raises funds for BWL to continue their mission of giving back to the community through social activism, mentorship and scholarship opportunities. BWL also distributes food baskets, toiletries and other goodies throughout the year to less fortunate families.
“As a strategy consultant with Mr. Dorton’s firm, it was truly an honor to be able to celebrate our 2014 accomplishments while also giving back to a great cause. This is the second year Mr. Dorton has sponsored the event. It felt really great seeing the firm’s logo displayed prominently throughout the event. 2014 has been a great year and we’re so excited about all the opportunities 2015 has in store,” said Divinity who has been working with Mr. Dorton since 2006.

ABOUT BWL: BWL was founded in 1975 after a small group of Los Angeles based African-American women judges and attorneys held a luncheon meeting to discuss the marked absence of an organization which addressed the needs and concerns of African-American women in the legal profession. The dialogue and events that followed became the genesis of BWL. Over the years, BWL branched out and grew through its various community projects and committee activities. The first BWL scholarship luncheon was held in 1975 at the Medallion Restaurant. Since then, BWL has raised scholarship funds annually for second and third year law students through its annual fundraising efforts by the Black Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles Foundation.
