Throughout the year, RCBA sponsors numerous social, fundraiser, and community outreach events. These include the annual Judges’ Dinner, Memorials, Annual Meeting, Golf Tournament, Bench & Bar Benefit, and Holiday Party. Other events include monthly Happy Hours Hosted by the New Lawyers.

Bench & Bar Benefit

The Bench & Bar Benefit, held in the fall of each year, is the major fundraiser for the Ramsey County Bar Foundation. The money raised at the event is awarded in grants to law-related organizations.

This year's Bench & Bar Benefit will be held virtually.

Families First Halloween Party

For over 20 years, RCBA volunteer attorneys organized the Families First Picnic in the summer for more than 200 children and their family members from economically disadvantaged St. Paul neighborhoods.

The Families First Halloween Party is held in late October at John A. Johnson Elementary.
