Along with a fine dinner, fun games and silent auction, the night is set to be filled with performances from local judges, attorneys and other members of the legal community.

"This year we have some good emcee's," says Peter Raukar, Volunter Attorney Program Board Chair. "We have Justice Anne McKeig from the Minnesota Supreme Court, as well as Judge Shaun Floerke and former Chief Public Defender Fred Friedman."

Interim Executive Director for the program, John Heino, says people might recognize one St. Louis County Attorney Mark Rubin performing a song or two. He'll have the help of his son Tony and State Appellate Court Judge Lucinda Jesson.

Doors open at 5 p.m at the Depot in Duluth. Dinner begins at 6 and entertainment starting at 7.

The nonprofit provides economically eligible individuals with pro bono civil legal services. They serve most counties in the greater Minnesota area.

"The legal system in itself is intimidating to most people," Heino explains. "If you don't have the means, I don't know where people would turn."
