Golden Gala



Story and photography by Liz Lyons

The Knoxville Bar Association recently hosted the 2019 Golden Gala at Hunter Valley Farms to honor local attorneys who have been licensed for 50 years or more. Food and specialty cocktails were provided by Holly’s Eventful Dining. The Golden Gala is held once per decade to celebrate attorneys for their many years of dedicated service not only to the legal profession but also to the community. The Knoxville Bar Association is a group of more than 1,900 attorneys, judges and law students who make up the core of the East Tennessee legal community. This voluntary bar association regularly hosts continuing legal education programs and social events and plans and presents community outreach and pro bono activities.
