BHDA Attorneys Co-host Holiday Fundraiser Benefitting Local Nonprofits
The Environmental Ladies Who Lunch, a networking group comprised of women professionals in the environmental field, recently held its annual luncheon and fundraising event at the Austin Central Library. Emily Rogers and Susan Maxwell, partners in the firm’s water law practice group, were among the hosts of the annual event.
For more than a decade, this networking group has hosted an annual holiday fundraiser which benefits local nonprofit organizations. The group raised nearly $2,000 for BookSpring and Art From the Streets, the featured beneficiaries of this year’s event. In addition, 60 books were collected during a book drive for BookSpring.
BookSpring builds early literacy in children and families through healthcare, education, and the community. From July 2018 through June 2019, the organization gifted 195,200 books to primarily children at the lowest end of the socio-economic scale.
