Young lawyers collaborate to support Operation Breakthrough 

On Dec. 14, 2023, members of The Missouri Bar Young Lawyers’ Section partnered with the Lawyers Association of Kansas City Young Lawyers’ Section to support the annual Santa’s Snow Ball event benefiting Operation Breakthrough, a charity organization built to serve impoverished families. 

This year’s Snow Ball included a holiday meal, gifts, balloon twisters, and time with Santa and Mrs. Claus. The two YLS groups provided funding for the event and volunteered to serve meals, pour drinks, and wrap and hand out gifts to families.

“Thank you seems to be the very least of words that could be said to Prof. Abrams for his remarkable career and contributions to the legal profession. Hopefully, they are enough.”
