Gala supports two charities

May 3, 2019

The Gay & Lesbian Lawyers Network hosted its 8th Annual Gala on April 13 at The Flagship in Fort Lauderdale. The total $13,487.74 raised from this year’s gala was divided between two very worthy nonprofit organizations: Latinos Salud, a local safe haven offering free testing and other non-medical HIV/AIDS support services for gay Latinos, transgender persons, and anyone living with HIV; and The Pet Project, which provides pet food and supplies and reduced-cost veterinary care to individuals facing financial challenges because of terminal illness, disability or aging, or because they are victims of crime.

Haliczer, Pettis & Schwamm was one of many sponsors of the signature event. Senior partners Eugene K. Pettis and Jim Haliczer attended and the firm, through its sponsorship, continues to support and celebrate diversity and inclusion throughout the South Florida legal community.
