2009 Allies for Justice Gala
On March 21, 2009 the Barry University Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law held the Allies for Justice Gala at the Church Street Ballroom in downtown Orlando. Many alumni came out to support their Alma Mater and we are grateful to you!

Amongst our many sponsor that so graciously donated to us in these difficult times we are happy to count five sponsors that had no previous donation history with the law school.

This year also marked the first time that we honored one alumnus and one student with an Ally Award. The Alumni Ally Award was presented to Jerry Girley, Esq. in recognition of his tireless work to improve the community and seek social justice for the voiceless and oppressed.
The Student Ally Award was conferred on Ashley Spizzuco and The Honorable Winifred J. Sharp (Ret.) was the recipient of the Allies for Justice Award.

To include an additional level of fun and excitement to the Gala we added a Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament as well as Black Jack, Roulette and Craps tables – much to the delight of everybody present.
