From the Bar
Walters and Cutler are People’s Choice for Dance at BBB
Former DBA President Bill Walters and his wife Christy Cutler were the crowd favorite for their performance at the Barristers Benefit Ball on Saturday, May 5. The couple’s performance was a sort of evolution of dance, highlighting various genres but capping it off with a few steps from Beyoncé’s infamous video “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).” Mark and Pat Fogg were rock and roll, dancing to “Born to Be Wild.” Elsa Martinez Tenreiro and her husband Steve Theis performed a sultry rumba. The couples all fundraised for Metro Volunteer Lawyers, raising more than $27,000 – the Foggs were the top fundraising couple. Read more about the event here. For BBB acknowledgments, click here. Check out photos of the event on our Facebook page.
