Led by Kevin Blanton, a partner in the Firm's Philadelphia office and president of the board for AIDS Fund Philadelphia, Team Schnader raised more than $2,300 to date towards the 2011 Philly AIDS Walk/Run and was one of the top corporate fundraisers for the event. The team, which was eight members strong, included attorneys and staff, walkers and runners, and even a few “virtual walkers”.
The team had enthusiastic support from across the Firm’s seven offices and held a firm wide “Wear Jeans to Work Day” on the Friday before the walk, allowing staff and attorneys to wear jeans for a donation in support of the team. Melissa Blanton, also a partner in the Firm's Philadelphia office, organized and coordinated the fund raising for Team Schnader within the Firm, getting the word out and encouraging all to participate for the cause.
Team Schnader will continue to accept donations through the end of the calendar year. You can support the Team's efforts and make a secure on-line donation by visiting the AIDS Fund website.
