    • There will be a special VIP wine tasting for sponsors above the $5,000 level;
    • Live entertainment will be provided by The Guilty Party Band.

    Ever wish that a fundraising event could be all about just having a good time, networking, and making great new connections? This is for you! There will be no long speeches, auctions, or fundraising pitches. Just a memorable evening in what is arguably Atlanta's finest home.

    • 13 May 2016
    • 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
    • Your Pie, 110 W. Bryan St., Savannah, GA 31401

    Please Join Christie Baer and the Stonewall Bar Association for a monthly Gayborhood event in Savannah, GA.

    The Stonewall Bar Association’s monthly “gayborhood” dinners are an opportunity for Stonewall Bar members (and their guests) to get together for a casual dinner with whoever shows up that month. “Technically, these are ‘networking events,’” said family law attorney Christie Ayotte Baer, “but they are actually just an opportunity to hang out with other LGBT attorneys in a casual environment. You don’t have to RSVP and you pay for your own food, so you control your tab. It’s possible that only two or three people will show up for the first several months, and that’s fine. We’re following the build it and they will come [out] approach.”

    Savannah is the first location outside of metro Atlanta to begin offering these monthly gatherings, but the SBA hopes it will not be the last, as the organization works to expand its membership statewide.

    Savannah’s monthly gayborhood dinners will be held on the second Friday of every month from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at Your Pie, 110 W. Bryan St., Savannah, GA 31401. For more information, contact Christie Ayotte Baer at christie@thebaerfirm.com or 912-662-5028. If you are thinking about hosting a monthly gayborhood meeting in your neighborhood (and you should), please contact Misty Peterson at mpeterson@kslaw.com.

    • Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP 1600 Atlanta Financial Center 3343 Peachtree Road, NE Atlanta, Georgia 30326

    Many regard the rights of transgender people as the next phase in civil rights litigation. But often the issues that transgender people face differ significantly from those of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and other sexual orientations. To help explore those differences, this CLE will be a "Trans 101," providing an introduction to the legal and social issues that trans persons face in Georgia, and then transitioning to a discussion of some of the cutting edge legal battles taking place today.
