Pro Bono / Charity

Pro Bono is all about Giving Back to Our Community.  We invite you to partner with OCPA and attend at least one of our Pro Bono events this year. If you would like to get involved or have an idea for a volunteer activity, please let us know.  We want to support organizations that our members are passionate about.

This year OCPA has plans to partner with the local Orange County organizations.  When an event is scheduled, we’ll update the website event calendar and send out an email blast to the membership calling for volunteers.  Note that many of our events welcome family and friends as well.  We look forward to seeing you at our next event.

Thank you from the Pro Bono Chair:
