2015 President's Award Recipients Announced

The Massachusetts Bar Foundation proudly announces that two of its most dedicated volunteers will be honored with President's Awards at the upcoming MBF Grantee Receptions. Award recipients are:

  • Elaine M. Epstein, a partner at Todd & Weld, LLP, in Boston
  • Charles J. DiMare, a partner at the Law Firm of Antonino & DiMare, in Amherst

Epstein, an Oliver Wendell Holmes Life Fellow, is being honored for longstanding support of the MBF and its mission to increase access to justice. A dedicated volunteer and generous donor, she served on the MBF Board of Trustees and the MA IOLTA Committee, founded and served as the first president of the Women's Bar Association, and represents the very best of the legal profession. Epstein will receive her award at the Eastern Mass. Grantee Reception, in Boston, on October 15.

DiMare's active participation in the MBF began in 1995, when he first became a member of the MBF Society of Fellows. Each year, he volunteers to review grant requests from organizations throughout the western region of the state. His expertise has helped ensure that the MBF's grant making is truly statewide and reaches effective programs that can further the foundation's goals and mission. The MBF will honor DiMare for his dedication and tireless advocacy on behalf of the communities of Western Mass. DiMare will receive his award at the Western Mass. Grantee Reception, in Amherst, on October 27.

The MBF hosts grantee receptions annually to show its appreciation to the MBF grantees and supporters. For more information or to RSVP, please click here.
