Pasadena, Calif. (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
Pasadena’s premier family law firm, The Law Offices of Donald P. Schweitzer, A Professional Corporation (LODPS, APC), announced today that it has partnered with Foothill Unity Center—a multi-service, non-profit agency serving low-income families throughout the San Gabriel Valley.
The partnership between LODPS and Foothill Unity Center will launch with the firm’s invitation-only 10-year anniversary Monte Carlo Night fundraiser March 14th at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium’s Gold Room. One hundred percent of all proceeds will go directly to Foothill Unity Center’s sponsored Mobile Dental Clinic, an annual community program in partnership with the University of Southern California’s School of Dentistry that offers comprehensive dental treatments, preventative measures and education during a seven-day period for approximately 120 school-age children.
“With the celebration of our 10-year anniversary, we want to give back to the community that’s been so generous and accepting of our firm,” said Donald P. Schweitzer, partner and founder, the Law Offices of Donald P. Schweitzer. “We chose Foothill Unity Center as our partner and beneficiary for many reasons, but above all they share our same client philosophy of treating each client and their families with integrity, respect and professionalism. It’s been my goal to extend our support beyond the families that walk through our office doors, and finally, with our new partnership, we are doing just that.”
“The Mobile Dental Clinic is one of our largest and most costly programs, but the benefits to the community outweighs the challenges of finding the financial support for it,” said Betty McWilliams, executive director, Foothill Unity Center. “In speaking with Mr. Schweitzer and his team, it’s apparent that the firm truly cares about all the families in the community it serves, and we are grateful for our partnership, and the support and dedication the firm is providing to this program. The Mobile Dental Clinic does remarkable work in our community by preventing serious ailments that could stem from untreated dental issues, but just as important, they are boosting the confidence of the children in our community.”
In 2012, the Mobile Dental Clinic provided 3,011 pediatric dental procedures ranging from sealants, filings, extractions, and minor oral surgery—services valued at $185,000. In addition to committing 100 percent of the proceeds from the 10-year anniversary fundraiser event, the Law Offices of Donald P. Schweitzer hope to rally the support of local businesses, professionals, colleagues and the community at large to raise as much funds to cover Foothill Unity Center’s $51,000 out-of-pocket costs for USC’s Mobile Dental Clinic.
