Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association honors county clerk and founder of Defender Services at annual dinner
The Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association hosted its 99th annual dinner at the Liberty Warehouse in Red Hook on Thursday where it honored a pair of accomplished women from Brooklyn’s legal community and said goodbye to outgoing President Sara J. Gozo.
“Since my installation on exactly this day one year ago, I have had the distinct honor of serving as the BWBA president,” Gozo said. “It was a great year and I feel that we have all taken the organization to even greater heights including adding over 100 new members to its ranks.”
The honorees included Hon. Nancy T. Sunshine, County Clerk of Kings County, Clerk of the Supreme Court and Commissioner of Jurors, who received the Beatrice M. Judge Recognition Award, and Lisa Schreibersdorf, the founder and executive director of the Brooklyn Defender Services, who got the Sybil Hart Kooper Award.
BWBA also recognized photographer Mario Belluomo and this reporter with plaques and honorary memberships within the organization for coverage during the past year.
