More than 525 people gathered to recognize leadership among alumni, the community, and the legal profession at the Pacific McGeorge Gala on November 3 in the Sacramento Convention Center.

The Saturday night event featured actor-comedian Ben Stein and a cabaret group of singing waiters. The event honored six individuals and two law firms whose combined efforts helped to raise more than $2 million for law school activities. U.S. District Court Judge Morrison England, a graduate of the University of the Pacific and Pacific McGeorge, was the evening’s emcee.

The honorees included: Hayne Moyer, ’75, lifetime leadership; Dona Buckingham, estate gift leadership; Downey Brand LLP, University partner; Dreyer, Babich, Buccola & Callaham, law school partner; Daniel Hitzke, ’00 and Roman Rector, ’00, special project leadership; Len McCandliss and Sierra Health Foundation, community bridge builder; Justice Arthur Scotland, ’74, volunteer leadership; and Brian Putler, ’85, Pacific McGeorge Alumnus of the Year.

“It was a remarkable evening and a fun event” said Dean Elizabeth Rindskopf Parker. “Such events are important for the opportunity they create for our alumni and friends to join together with a sense of pride in their accomplishments over the years.”
