ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - A Charlottesville-area lawyer is being honored for helping eliminate sexual violence in the community.

The Sexual Assault Resource Agency (SARA) presented Geri Greenspan with the Annette DeGregoria Grimm Award at its annual award breakfast at the Boar's Head Inn Wednesday, November 7.

As an attorney, Greenspan concentrates exclusively on pro bono matters and representing and advising domestic and sexual assault violence survivors.

"She worked with one of our clients and did some really great work with her, and we wanted to honor that work and honor what she does to help our community," said SARA Executive Director Rebecca Weybright.

More than 200 people attended the event, which raises money to help SARA continue its prevention education and community outreach.

NBC29's Jennifer Von Reuter gave the welcoming remarks.
