Women and the Law News


Posted on: Sep 16, 2015

On Saturday, September 12 and Tuesday, September 15, 18 volunteers from the Women & the Law Division made meals for families in need at Dream Dinners.

There was a great turnout both days, and over the course of the two sessions, 110 family-sized meals were prepared.

This event would not have been possible without the following sponsors: Quarles & Brady LLP, Benesch Friedlander Coplan & Aronoff LLP, the Women & the Law Division Executive Committee, and Plews Shadley Racher & Braun LLP. Thank you for helping us make a difference!

Saturday's meals were donated to EMBRACE, a program that serves families of patients undergoing chemotherapy, and Tuesday's meals were donated to The Julian Center, which serves families fleeing domestic violence.

Representatives from each organization came and spoke about their respective organizations, expressing their appreciation for the meals. This was a great opportunity to network and connect with each other while serving those in need in our community.

 

Big thank you to Stacy Hiller (pictured above), co-owner of Dream Dinners, who helped us organize the event and provided a discount to help us serve more families.
