Join CFEBA and thank a lineman today!

04/18/2016

 

Today, April 18th is National Lineman Appreciation Day as designated by the U.S. Senate. The Charitable Foundation of the Energy Bar Association (CFEBA) wants to extend our gratitude to these hard working individuals who put their lives at risk every day and sacrifice valuable time away from their families, to keep the lights on for the rest of us, oftentimes in hazardous conditions, like hurricanes and ice storms.

As you may have heard, this year the CFEBA is focusing primarily on the electrification of several communities in the northeast region of Bolivia. What you may not know however, is a team of 14 linemen will construct 21 miles of power lines, providing a total of 461 families with a chance at a better life. This project will create profound change for many people who have never had electricity in their homes and it would not be possible without the talent and dedication of these line workers.

We encourage you to thank a line worker in your community for their public service, and on June 7th, we invite you to join us at the 2016 CFEBA Fundraising Gala,  Light Up the Village! where CFEBA will honor line workers of the U.S. utilities, and where we hope to present a sizable donation to Light Up the Village!

We look forward to recognizing these fearless line workers during our elegant Gala dinner, immediately following the first day of the EBA Annual Meeting and Conference. Tickets are $250 per person and numerous sponsorship opportunities are available.
