Legal Aid Programs of Broward County are hosting the 18th Annual For the Public Good Annual Fundraiser to honor Howard Finkelstein, Broward County Public Defender, for his life-long commitment to ensuring equal access to justice and his career in public service. The annual fundraiser will be held on Thursday, November 14, 2019 at 6 p.m. at The Signature Grand (6900 State Road 84, Davie, FL 33317).
“Now in its 18th year, this annual fundraiser celebrates members of the community who demonstrate outstanding efforts to change lives and serve the public good,” said Jeffrey Wank, Esq., Board Chair of the Legal Aid Programs in Broward. “This year, we are highlighting Broward County Public Defender Howard Finkelstein for serving the underprivileged and underserved in Broward County for many years.,” said Wank.
Event attendees will enjoy a cocktail reception, two complimentary drink tickets, and a silent auction, followed by the program with a seated dinner and live auction emceed by WSVN’s Brian Entin. All proceeds from the event will benefit an estimated 20,000 low-income individuals and families, including children, seniors, veterans, homeless individuals, survivors of domestic violence and other crimes, unaccompanied immigrant minors, and persons living with HIV/AIDS by enabling Legal Aid Programs of Broward to continue to provide free civil legal representation, advice, and education.
