ILS to celebrate 30 years with benefit

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share
The Indiana Legal Services chapter that provides free legal services for low-income residents in civil cases in Monroe and 13 other counties will celebrate its 30th anniversary Aug. 29 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Tutto bene Wine Cafe, 213 S. Rogers St., Bloomington.

ILS typically handles cases that involve issues of domestic violence, housing, consumer law, access to health care, and government benefits. It recently partnered with the Indiana University School of Law - Bloomington to establish an Elder Law Clinic. With funding from the Internal Revenue Service, the Bloomington ILS office also recently started a Low Income Taxpayer Clinic.

The Bloomington chapter, started in 1977, is one of 11 chapters around the state that relies on some funding from the statewide ILS, which was started in 1966 and now reaches clients in every Indiana county.

The benefit will include fine wine, food, art, and a silent auction. Ticket prices are $50 for a regular ticket or $100 for a premium ticket that includes a bottle of wine. Attendees may also purchase two regular tickets for $90 or two premium tickets for $175. Tickets are available at the Buskirk-Chumley's Sunrise Box Office, 14 E. Kirkwood Ave., Bloomington.

There's no deadline for registration; tickets will be available at the door for the same price as advance tickets.

At a similar benefit for the Bloomington chapter of ILS in 2005, the organization exceeded its goal of 100 tickets and raised thousands more dollars than their original goal. A spokesperson for this year's event, Anthony Piatt of Bloomington-based Fly on the Wall Media, said sponsors have the same hopes for this year.

For tickets, auction donations, or corporate sponsorship, contact Steve Sharpe, Indiana Legal Services, (812) 339-7668, ext. 241, or steve.sharpe@ilsi.net.

  1. Im very happy for you, getting ready to go down that dirt road myself, and im praying for the same outcome, because it IS sometimes in the childs best interest to have visitation with grandparents. Thanks for sharing, needed to hear some positive posts for once.

  2. Been there 4 months with 1 paycheck what can i do

  3. our hoa has not communicated any thing that takes place in their "executive meetings" not executive session. They make decisions in these meetings, do not have an agenda, do not notify association memebers and do not keep general meetings minutes. They do not communicate info of any kind to the member, except annual meeting, nobody attends or votes because they think the board is self serving. They keep a deposit fee from club house rental for inspection after someone uses it, there is no inspection I know becausee I rented it, they did not disclose to members that board memebers would be keeping this money, I know it is only 10 dollars but still it is not their money, they hire from within the board for paid positions, no advertising and no request for bids from anyone else, I atteended last annual meeting, went into executive session to elect officers in that session the president brought up the motion to give the secretary a raise of course they all agreed they hired her in, then the minutes stated that a diffeerent board member motioned to give this raise. This board is very clickish and has done things anyway they pleased for over 5 years, what recourse to members have to make changes in the boards conduct

  4. Where may I find an attorney working Pro Bono? Many issues with divorce, my Disability, distribution of IRA's, property, money's and pressured into agreement by my attorney. Leaving me far less than 5% of all after 15 years of marriage. No money to appeal, disabled living on disability income. Attorney's decision brought forward to judge, no evidence ever to finalize divorce. Just 2 weeks ago. Please help.

  5. For the record no one could answer the equal protection / substantive due process challenge I issued in the first post below. The lawless and accountable only to power bureaucrats never did either. All who interface with the Indiana law examiners or JLAP be warned.
