"Raising the Bar" Campaign Asks Bar Association to Donate to PDAP

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - District attorneys from around South Texas teamed up Friday to challenge all local members of the Texas Bar Association. It's a challenge that will benefit the Palmer Drug Abuse Program.

"We're trying to make a difference," said John T. Hubert, Kenedy-Kleberg County District Attorney. "We're trying to help people so they can help themselves."

The DA's are calling it the "Raising the Bar" campaign. During the month of July, the DA's are challenging members of the Bar Association to donate $100 to PDAP in hopes of reaching the program's goal of $70,000.

Each lawyer or firm that donates will get their picture or logo on the agency's website.
