This star-studded benefit concert will raise funds for the Rikki Fleisher Fund for Professional Development at the Public Justice Center.

Rikki Fleisher was an ardent supporter who believed in the possibility of a just society and knew what it takes to get the job done. Join us to celebrate her legacy and to support the Fund her family and friends established in memory of a life well-lived.

Together we will raise the roof for a very good cause.

There is no cost for admission, but we will ask you for a contribution, so come prepared to be generous! Bring friends!

Reservations strongly encouraged. At the last concert, every seat was filled. Reserve your spot today with an email to Jennifer Pelton: peltonj@publicjustice.org or call her at (410) 400-6953.

If you can't join us but would still like to contribute to the Fund, you can make a gift here. Or mail your gift to Public Justice Center, Attn: Fleisher Fund, One N Charles Street, Suite 200, Baltimore, MD 21201.

Thank you!
