The Community Legal Center has been helping Memphians of modest means solve their legal problems with free or low-cost legal services for nearly 30 years.
It’s a nonprofit organization that’s assisted families facing eviction, grandparents seeking to adopt their grandchildren, elderly people at risk of abuse, and others who have turned to the CLC’s staff of attorneys for assistance navigating a complex court system.
The CLC’s fall fundraiser, CLCerveza, is coming up on Friday, Nov. 3, from 6-8 p.m. It will be held at Grind City Brewing Co., 76 Waterworks Ave.
Tickets for the family-friendly event are $30 and include two drink tickets for Grind City beers and live music from John Butler. The Flying Sobies food truck will also be on site.
Tickets can be purchased now on the CLC’s website. People can also sponsor tickets for law students or CLC clients if they can’t make it themselves.
All proceeds from CLCerveza will go toward ensuring that the CLC can keep its fees low to assist families in need of help.
The CLC’s civil program serves the working poor, Memphis families who fall into the gap between financial eligibility for federally funded legal aid and the ability to hire a private attorney. The CLC also has elder law and immigrant justice programs.
