Presented by The Law Offices of Robin Bresky, the Afternoon
Will Feature the First-Ever “Community Dance for Justice”
Led by Civic, Legal, Community Leaders to Benefit the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
The Law Offices of Robin Bresky (BL) invites the community to ring in the new year with an inspiring and interactive afternoon of music, food, entertainment, children’s activities and balloon and mural art to benefit the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County (LASPBC) on Sunday, January 13, 2019 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Mizner Park Amphitheater. The featured highlight will be the first-ever Palm Beach County “COMMUNITY DANCE for JUSTICE” created and led by Dance with Me (DWM) Dance Studio professionals and performed by a group of more than 40+ civic, legal, corporate, nonprofit and community leaders who have “stepped up to dance up” to raise funds to support the LASPBC’s services for victims of domestic and elder abuse. Event-goers will also have the opportunity to create a “Hands Up in Justice for All” themed mural and receive free admission to the Boca Raton Museum of Art following the Bresky Bash, from 3 p.m. to closing.
Presenting sponsor: The Law Offices of Robin Bresky will be hosting the community event; emcee will be South Florida attorney Mark Eiglarsh, the nationally sought-after broadcast legal analyst who has been featured on shows such as The View, Dr. Phil and Dr. Drew to provide insight on the latest and often, the most compelling legal issues. In addition to music by DJ Nikko Capria of Nikko Entertainment, food trucks, balloon artists, face painters, children’s activities and crafts and jewelry shopping, there will be 40+ legislators and government officials, presidents from several Florida bar associations, attorneys, companies and nonprofit advocates on stage to perform as “Community Justice Dancers”.
According to BL firm founder and LASPBC board member Robin Bresky, the original dance routine is being created and taught by the professionals at DWM Dance Studio at Town Center of Boca Raton that was founded by ABC Television’s “Dancing with the Stars” professionals Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Valentin Chmerkovskiy. Palm Beach County’s own roster of celebrated Community Justice Dancers will learn and perform the warm-up dance for Bresky Bash event-goers and then together with DWM professionals will lead an original dance routine: “COMMUNITY DANCE for JUSTICE”.
“This is not a competition in any way, but rather an opportunity for leaders and advocates to ‘take a lead part’ in an inspiring high-energy and engaging community-unifying event to support the Legal Aid Society,” shared Robin Bresky who founded her law firm in 2000, and currently serves as member, Board of Governors, Florida Bar; is the immediate past president of the National Conference of Women’s Bar Associations (NCWBA), past president of South Palm Beach County Bar Association (SPBCBA) and past president of the Florida Association for Women Lawyers (FAWL). “In Palm Beach County — where we live, work, play and learn — we know that domestic and elder abuse continues to rise (much in silence) and as colleagues in the legal and civic community we can make a difference.”
Thus, Bresky reported that the Bresky Bash has a tri-fold mission” to 1) raise awareness of the LASPBC, 2) increase education on the meaningful work of the LAS and 3) raise funds to help expand services to those who need it the most.
