Fowler White Burnett will meet the United Way of Miami-Dade’s “Dare to Dodge” challenge in a dodgeball tournament featuring Miami’s top law firms on Thursday, March 20 at the Downtown Athletic Club.
Now in its second year, the tournament has doubled in size to include eight law firms in an event where teams from each firm meet on a different kind of court to face off in a single elimination round, complete with referees from Miami Dodgeball League, a giant trophy for the winner and bragging rights.
Participants include more than 200 staff, attorneys and partners from Fowler White Burnett, Akerman LLP, Berger Singerman, Bilzin Sumberg, Carlton Fields Jorden Burt, Greenberg Traurig, Holland & Knight and Kluger Kaplan, and other VIPs.
Photo, video and interview opportunities are available at the event which will be held from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the Downtown Athletics Club, 200 South Biscayne, 15th Floor in Miami.
Fowler White Burnett’s participation in Dare to Dodge is part of the firm’s FWB Connects Community Service Initiative. Committed to the principle of giving back to the South Florida Community, which Fowler White Burnett is grateful to have served for over 70 years, the firm created the initiative to provide 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 organizations in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
Dare to Dare to Dodge is yet another example of how United Way serves as a bridge, linking all sectors of the community, and bringing diverse partners and competitors to the same table. All proceeds from the tournament benefit United Way’s work in education, health and financial stability. Dare to Dodge tournament sponsors include SABMiller and Vita Coco.
