Fox Rothschild’s Princeton Office Treats Homeless Children to Disney on IceFebruary 2, 2009
Fox Rothschild LLP's Princeton office recently hosted a night at Disney on Ice for approximately 45 people from HomeFront, a local charity helping the homeless in Central New Jersey. The group attended the January 29, 2009, show at the Sovereign Bank Arena in Trenton, NJ.
"We want to thank Fox Rothschild for taking us to see Disney on Ice," said Chris Marchetti, the director of HomeFront's Joy, Hopes and Dreams Program. "The children absolutely loved it! They were so happy to be part of it all. With Fox Rothschild's help, we had a recipe for some really wonderful, lasting memories for these children."
"This was really an exciting event to host," said Stephen Brill, an attorney at Fox Rothschild and organizer of the event. "The kids were captivated by the show and were smiling from ear to ear after it was over. To see that something so simple can make such a lasting impression – it's remarkable. We're very happy that we were able to be a part of this event."
Fox Rothschild sponsored tickets and food for the 37 children and eight adults. Ten members of the Fox Rothschild Princeton office also attended the outing.
