“When we started with Raise the Bar 15 years ago, I never dreamed this event would grow to the scale it has,” said April Boyer, committee chair and partner at K&L Gates. “Most importantly, the money raised directly helps support the important work The Women’s Fund-Miami Dade does in our community. Given that October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the timing of Raise the Bar is perfect to increase awareness. ”
Since its inception, funds raised from Raise the Bar have supported advocacy and grant making programs that work with survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking. These programs have included providing services such as legal assistance, shelter, counseling and education.
The event is sponsored by law firms and local businesses, including Champion sponsor Bacardi; Partner sponsors: American Airlines, Greenberg Traurig; Advocate sponsors: Jones Day, K&L Gates, Kaufman Rossin, Malloy & Malloy, PW Wine Distributors, Royal Caribbean Cruises; Counselor sponsors: Brady Law Firm, P.A.,Podhurt Orseck, The Miami Women’s Club, White & Case LLP; Amicus sponsors: Bast Amron LLP, DJ Self Born, Fair Trade Marketplace, Hertz·Sager, McDo
