“One of Bob’s mantras was ‘practicing law will earn you a living but doing pro bono work will give you a reason to live’,” Anne Otterson and George Guimaraes, PCI (Positive Community Impact, San Diego)
For those who are interested, and as an expression of sympathy, memorial contributions in Bob’s name may be made to Children of the Night. Children of the Night is a privately funded non-profit organization established in 1979 and dedicated to rescuing America’s children from the ravages of prostitution. This is a charity that was near and dear to Bob. He gave countless hours of pro-bono legal assistance to the organization. Those who would like to make a donation in memory of Bob may do so by sending a check to Children of the Night, 14530 Sylvan Street, Van Nuys, California 91411 or by making it directly on the website childrenofthenight.org It is important that they note this gift is in memory of Bob Gerber.
“Robert Gerber’s commitment to pro bono work and those less fortunate embodied the spirit of Ralph Nader’s quote when he said, ‘A society that has more justice is a society that needs less charity’.” — Dr. Lois Lee
