Mecklenburg County Bar & Foundation Center Naming Rights Campaign



The Mecklenburg County Bar and Mecklenburg Bar Foundation are proud to announce that thanks to the wonderful generosity of our firms, corporate law departments and foundations, and individuals in campaign leadership, over $1.2 million was raised for the Bar & Foundation Center Naming Rights Campaign. Special thanks goes to the Campaign Co-Chairs Dianne Bailey, John Lassiter, Mac McCarley, the entire Campaign Cabinet and the Major Gifts Committee for all their hard work. Without them, none of this would be possible.



Gifts of $1,000 or more are prominently recognized in the Parker, Poe, Adams & Bernstein, LLP Lobby & Atrium as major gifts, and all gifts are recognized below. If you have not had a chance to see these plaques, we invite you to stop by any time. Thank you.
