This year’s Justice For All Ball featured the same kind of wonderful food and music that is part of our Louisiana tradition, as well as new and exciting auction and raffle items and, some surprises for all at the most amazing two venues: Pelicans Indoor Practice Facility and the Saints Indoor Training Facility.

Honorary Chair, Gayle Benson, and husband Tom, greeted guests in the 'homes away from home' to kick off the evening of fun and frolic. The Bensons' generous offer to use both facilities allowed The Pro Bono Project to maintain their longstanding tradition of having the Patron Party and Ball in two separate venues. This is the first, last, and only time in the history of the two facilities that a local non-profit has been given this opportunity. The Project is grateful to the Bensons for their hospitality and commitment to this special tradition.
