Legal Aid to Honor ‘Volunteer of the Year’

Legal Aid Service of Collier County has selected Penny Taylor as its ‘Volunteer of the Year.’ Ms. Taylor will be honored by Legal Aid at the 6th Annual Barrister’s Bash fundraiser event to be held at the Hilton in Naples on May 1, 2014.

Ms. Taylor is being honored by Legal Aid for her years of volunteer service to the organization in connection with the Barrister’s Bash event. Since the launch of the inaugural Barrister’s Bash in 2009, Ms. Taylor has donated her talents as a photographer to Legal Aid each year to photograph the event. She has also served on the Steering Committee of the Barrister’s Bash since 2012 – and has secured valuable items and donations each for the event through her many contacts, and has generously donated to Legal Aid of her own resources.

“Penny has a heart of gold, and despite the demands of her schedule, she has been so generous to Legal Aid with her time and talent,” states Jeff Ahren, Director of Development. “Penny truly cares about giving back to the community, and the importance of pro bono service. She is an inspiration to us all, and we are so very glad to be able to honor her as our Volunteer of the Year.”
