Miami, FL – Fowler White Burnett has received an honorable mention for the firm’s Fowler White Burnett Connects program from the Legal Marketing Association Southeastern Chapter. The LMASE Your Honor Awards showcase the leading designs and creative strategies from firms throughout the Southeast.
Committed to the principle of giving back to the South Florida Community, which Fowler White Burnett is grateful to have served for more than 70 years, the firm created the Fowler White Burnett Connects Community Service Initiative earlier this year.
The program provides a venue for Fowler White Burnett attorneys, staff and their families to join together in a variety of efforts to support the important work of many worthy, not-for-profit organizations in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
From Habitat Blitz builds to participating in 5K runs, the firm encourages attorneys, staff and their families to be actively involved in enhancing the firm's presence in the communities it serves.
Fowler White Burnett Connects’ initiatives include involvement in the following organizations:
United Way of Miami-Dade
As part of its involvement with the United Way, Fowler White Burnett participated in a dodgeball tournament fundraiser at the Downtown Athletic Club. Now in its second year, the tournament included teams from eight of Miami's top law firms and participation from over 200 staff, attorneys and partners.
The Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run and the UPS 5k provided an opportunity for attorneys and staff to join together to run and raise money for many of the United Way’s programs.
For 90 years, United Way of Miami-Dade has been an innovative force in the community with a long and successful track record of responding to emerging needs and transforming people's lives. Today, their work is focused on education, financial stability and health - the building blocks of a good life. They invest in quality programs, advocate for better policies, engage people in the community and generate resources.
OurKids of Miami Dade/Monroe Inc.
During the holidays, members of the firm joined together to collect gifts for 50 children in 24 families in the foster care system and raised over $1,500 to benefit OurKids of Miami Dade/Monroe Inc. OurKids creates safe havens for children and families through adoption and foster care. The organization strives to coordinate a system of care delivering excellence to abused, abandoned and neglected children and their families in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties.
The HELO Foundation
Wicked at the Wanderers, sponsored by Fowler White Burnett working in conjunction with the Young Professionals of Wellington, was a fun-filled evening of costume contests, dancing and a silent auction to benefit the HELO Foundation. The HELO Foundation aids in the transition of veterans returning from overseas to civilian life by partnering with colleges and universities across the country to establish Veteran Resource Centers that provide scholarship opportunities, mentoring and career development services to returning veterans.
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Miami
Fowler White Burnett attorneys came together to help build a home and completed various construction-related tasks as part of their participation in the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Miami Blitz Build. The Blitz Build is an accelerated construction event in which more than 1,500 volunteers work together to complete the building of 10 homes within two weeks to provide the deserving, low-income partner families of Habitat for Humanity with residences.
