Dec. 16, 2011 | Coral Gables, FL - HNBA South Florida members and friends celebrated the holidays with a drive for toys and donations for Toys for Tots and Lawyers for Children America – a leading child advocacy organization protecting the rights of children who are victims of abuse, abandonment and neglect by providing quality pro bono legal representation and collaborating for systematic change to improve the lives of children. “We collected so many toys that the Marines spent the night making trips to their vehicle, to drop them off,” said HNBA Regional President Teresita Chavez Pedrosa. The celebration was held at Cinco in Coral Gables. HNBA South Florida members are very thankful to the following sponsors: Carlton Fields, K&L Gates, Arrastia & Capote, MDO Partners, Barton King Soret, P.A., Mestre Law and Grant Thornton.
