Fort Lauderdale, FL (January 29, 2009)
The Law Offices of Roger P. Foley hosted the 2nd Annual Broward County Courthouse Christmas Party that raised more than $1,600 to benefit the I. Lorraine Thomas Children’s Emergency Home and Family Support Center. This festive holiday party took place on Friday December 12, 2008 after being postponed one week due to flooding in the Courthouse.
“We wanted to make the party a resounding success enabling us to extend the holiday spirit to this worthy charity and feel we accomplished this with over thirty participants donating.” says Roger P. Foley.
