Mexican American Bar Association Holds Mixer at Sugarbeets Restaurant

The Ventura County Mexican American Bar Association (MABA) held its first mixer of 2013 on Thursday, April 25th at Sugarbeets Restaurant, 455 S. “A” Street, in downtown Oxnard.

“The reason we host networking mixers is to allow current MABA members the opportunity to reconnect and socialize outside of the day-to-day litigation world and to also welcome our new members,” said MABA President, attorney Lou Kreuzer. “Our organization is committed to helping Latino students in the area of law.”

“Our main fundraiser is our scholarship dinner where we award scholarships to deserving high school and college students.”

MABA’s nonprofit arm focuses on assisting students pursuing higher education in the area of law. Rebecca Mendoza, president of the MABA Education Foundation said, “We have traditionally given away four $1,000 scholarships and one computer. The scholarships normally go to a high school student or a law student. The computer usually goes to a college law student or law related field.”
MABA is committed to the advancement of the legal profession and the empowerment of the Latino community through advocacy and the promotion of equal justice. Attendees were encouraged to become more involved in MABA. The event was open to the public.
