Fox Rothschild Joins the Support Center for Child Advocates at the 7th Annual Child Advocates Golf Classic

September 27, 2012 – Press Releases

Fox Rothschild will join the Support Center for Child Advocates as a sponsor of the agency’s 7th Annual Golf Classic to be held Monday, October 1 at the Huntingdon Valley Country Club, one of the top five golf courses in Pennsylvania.

All proceeds from the event will support the Child Advocates Project for Medically Needy Children, which teams staff social workers with specially trained volunteer lawyers to secure necessary medical treatment, special education, rehabilitation services, and whenever possible, permanent homes for children with serious and/or chronic medical needs.

“It is an honor to support such an outstanding organization and know our assistance will make a positive impact on the lives of many children in need,” said Michael G. Menkowitz, chair of the firm’s Real Estate department.

“Our medically needy cases are more complex, remain open longer, and require more agency resources than typical cases,” says Frank Cervone, Executive Director of Child Advocates and a nationally recognized child abuse legal authority. “The Philadelphia corporate and legal communities have been critical in generating funds, awareness and changing the story for many of our areas most vulnerable children.”

Event partner, Cleantech Alliance Mid-Atlantic(CAMA) will present an exciting pre-golf morning program, Digging Deep into Marcellus Shale, which will provide an in-depth exploration of the legal, economic and environmental issues surrounding Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling.
