The Dallas Bar Association dedicated its 29th house for Habitat for Humanity on August 24. The DBA began building homes for Habitat in 1991 and is the longest running whole-house sponsor in Dallas.

Volunteer attorneys work on the Habitat projects with the central theme being “no commitment of time or money is too small; every hour and every dollar make a difference.”

The DBA Home Project Committee coordinates the build and is led by co-chairs David Fisk, of Kane Russell Coleman Logan, and Michael Bielby Jr., of Vinson & Elkins.

Donors for this year’s project include:
• Platinum Hard Hats ($7,000+): Vinson & Elkins;
• Gold Hard Hats ($6,000-$6,999): Thompson & Knight Foundation;
• Silver Hard Hats ($3,500-$5,999): Baron and Blue Foundation; Drinker Biddle & Reath; Rogge Dunn Group;
