Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) December 17, 2014
Holidays should be a time for families to celebrate and enjoy the extra time they have together – not worry about where there next meal is going to come from. That’s why the Fort Lauderdale law firm of Lawlor, Winston, White & Murphey participated in Thanksgiving and Christmas outreach efforts to help needy families in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, and Monroe counties in Florida for the 5th straight year. With the generous help of their community partners, 500 local families were given a helping hand to make the holiday season just a little bit brighter for them.
For the Thanksgiving event on November 23, 2014, the firm partnered with the law firm of Farmer, Jaffe, Weissing, Edwards, Fistos & Lehrman, P.L.; House Representative and local Ft. Lauderdale lawyer Perry Thurston; Matthew Kahn, C.P.A.; Scott M. Vengel, C.P.A.; Beef O’Brady’s; Synergy Settlement Services; Alpha & Omega Court Reporting; IJDI; The Guest List; White Rabbit Marketing; and the Kappa Foundation to provide The Fifth Annual Broward County Thanksgiving Community Outreach. Participants not only provided generous monetary donations, but also worked hard to create and hand-deliver Thanksgiving dinner baskets that included turkey as well as other traditional Thanksgiving fare to families in the Pompano Beach area. Senior Partner John K. Lawlor said, “We are proud to continue what has become a tradition of giving in our legal community.”
The firm’s Fort Lauderdale office also hosted their Annual Holiday Kickoff Open House and cocktail party on November 21, 2014, where guests brought toys and gifts to be donated to children of elementary school age. KIDS in Distress (KID), a nationally accredited, community-supported agency dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and the care and treatment of abused children in Broward and Palm Beach counties, will distribute the gifts that were donated during the open house.
