2017 Gala Honoree - Hal Braff
Hal is so deserving of this honor, not only because he has served diligently as a board member of the Society for a decade, but, as well, for his outstanding efforts as a civil rights attorney, an outstanding trial attorney and for his national reputation as the Director of Inn Development for the National Inns of Court Foundation.
Hal has shown exemplary leadership as co-founder and President of the Weequahic Alumni Association where he has led efforts to supply college scholarships to African-American students at the Newark high school.
We join the entire community in bestowing this coveted honor!
