Benefit banquet raises $12,000 for injured law school student

A benefit banquet for injured USC law student Alan Martinez drew 200 attendees and raised about $12,000 to go toward his recovery, according to his brother and second-year law student Mike Martinez.

A group of law students, including Martinez’s brother, organized the All in for Alan Benefit Banquet, held at 701 Whaley Thursday night. The event featured a silent auction, live musical entertainment and food and drinks from Breaker’s Bar and Grill, all of which was donated to the fundraiser.
