As part of its “GT Cares” community service program, the Miami office of international law firm Greenberg Traurig will participate in the United Way “Dare to Dodge” dodgeball tournament next month. The event, which the firm kicked off in 2010 as an internal fundraising initiative for the United Way of Miami-Dade, will now feature an action-packed law firm vs. law firm competition taking place from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., Wednesday, March 13, at the indoor basketball court of the JW Marriott Marquis in downtown Miami at 255 Biscayne Boulevard Way, Miami, FL, 33131.
“We are thrilled that Greenberg Traurig’s annual dodgeball tournament has become a community-wide initiative and are excited to join forces with our legal counterparts to show our support of the United Way,” said Jaret L.
