The Bilzin Sumberg Dodge Squad is getting set to square off against three other South Florida law firms in an upcoming dodgeball tournament to raise funds for the United Way of Miami-Dade.  

On March 13, we will vie for the title of Dodgeball Champion 2013 alongside Akerman Senterfitt, Carlton Fields and Greenberg Traurig at 5:30 p.m at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami. Entry fees paid by participants and supporters will be donated to United Way. As coach of the Dodge Squad, I cannot reveal our “secret weapon,” but I can tell you that we believe it will be the key to our victory.   

Fun aside, the fundraiser is a great reason to join forces with our legal counterparts and “Live United” in support of a larger goal. Our participation in the dodgeball tournament is part of Bilzin Sumberg Cares, the firm’s community involvement program that provides the Bilzin Sumberg community with volunteer opportunities to work together to benefit charitable organizations in South Florida and beyond. Bilzin Sumberg Cares has partnered with United Way of Miami-Dade on many occasions; most recently, attorneys and staff spent a day painting murals and landscaping the school grounds at Norwood Elementary in Miami Gardens.
