The 22nd annual Comedy Night at Back Forty Texas BBQ in Pleasant Hill was a highlight. Hosted by Justice Maria Rivera, this year’s show featured Rocky LaPorte and Emily Epstein White. More than 20 generous sponsors donated to support the event. See below for photos.


Over the years, the Bar Association has collected more than $1.25 million and 56 tons of food for the Food Bank. A special thank you to our sponsors; we could not have done this without your support!
