Brayton Purcell, L.L.P., Sponsoring Several Non-Profit Events in April

RELEASED - March 28, 2014

Brayton Purcell, L.L.P., is pleased to announce that it will be sponsoring three non-profit events in the month of April. Each event has been planned with the purpose of supporting a worthy cause and will take place on the evening of April 26, 2014.

The Marin Humane Society's For the Love of Animals Gala Benefit will feature a program, auctions, fine wine, and a three-course dinner. People may reserve a table or a seat and even make a monetary contribution or donate items that will benefit the Marin Humane Society. Brayton Purcell, L.L.P., is proud to be a diamond collar patron for this important event, as many employees are professed animal lovers at the firm. A list of employee pets can be found on the website.

Lifehouse's Great Chefs and Wineries Event will offer attendees a live concert featuring Tower of Power, fine wine to enjoy, culinary dishes from professional chefs, and a silent auction. The event, of which the law firm is a platinum sponsor, is being held in support of Lifehouse, which has provided services and support to the developmentally disabled persons for 60 years. Along with sponsoring the Great Chefs and Wineries Event, Brayton Purcell employees will also volunteer to set up, work, and take down the event.

The Marin Advocates for Children's Annual Benefit and Auction will use its proceeds to further its work in advocating for children and preventing child abuse. People may buy tickets to the benefit, purchase raffle tickets, and/or become an individual or corporate sponsor like Brayton Purcell, L.L.P.
