DOWNEY -- More than 150 judges, prosecutors, public defenders, private attorneys, and supporters will participate in the Mexican American Bar Association’s annual golf tournament at the Rio Hondo Golf Club on Friday, July 29.
MABA, as the association is known, was founded in 1959 by a group of Mexican-American attorneys who saw the need “to create an organization committed to empowering and educating the Latino community.”
Noreen Barcena, who co-chaired the event, stated: "I am excited and sincerely grateful to the local businesses and restaurants who have so graciously signed up to participate. This year's Golf Tournament is sure to be memorable."
Downey attorney Ricardo Perez served as golf tournament vice-chair and assisted in establishing local Downey support. Mayor Alex Saab will provide welcoming remarks at the tournament’s awards banquet.
