Tuesdays at the Bar is Going E-mail

Though Tuesdays at the Bar is no longer sending out paper brochures in the mail, one thing will stay the same. You’ll still hear your favorite pundits, judges, ethical know-it-alls, and all around good speakers at Tuesdays at the Bar every Tuesday for a low price, a CLE credit, and a good lunch.

While we aren’t changing speakers, we are changing the way you hear about it. From now on, you’ll get an e-mail telling you about the great programs coming up. Of about 7,200 members, there are 1,600 for whom we need an e-mail address. Larry says:

“Don’t get left out of the Tuesdays at the Bar CLE loop!” Give us your e-mail by calling (303) 860-1115 or by e-mailing

Attorney raises $17,000 for MDA

Every year, the DBA YLD raises an extraordinary amount of money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s annual “Lock-Up” event. This year they have raised more than $50,000 and some say as much as $70,000.

An even bigger achievement is that Kristin Hauptman of Notarianni & Notarianni single-handedly raised $17,153 for MDA.

Real estate related companies, held by Mercury Companies, Inc., helped bail-out Kristin.“It was a great privilege to rally these businesses behind such a good cause,” she said.

The MDA has invited her to appear on behalf of the DBA YLD at its upcoming annual Memorial Day telethon in Chicago. Great job, Kristin!
