July 11, 2012 - PRLog -- San Francisco, CA: Ms. JD recently announced that its first annual Cocktail Benefit for the Global Education Fund is scheduled for August 3, 2012. Hosted at trendy Gallery and Bar 4N5 in SOMA, this charity event will feature a silent auction, music, live entertainment, hors d'oeuvres and a limited open bar. Planned festivities include life-size Jenga and other games generously provided by homefrys.

In Uganda, more than 45% of women over the age of 25 have no schooling, and men are more than twice as likely as women to have access to higher education. Ms. JD’s Global Education Fund provides women in developing countries with the opportunity to pursue a legal education through full scholarships. The Cocktail Benefit will celebrate Ms. JD's unwavering commitment to promote women’s education in developing countries and its current Ugandan law student scholars: Joaninne Nanyange, Monica Athieno, Gracious Atuhaire, and Mary Nakale.

Ms. JD is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to the success of women in law school and the legal profession.
