Shutts & Bowen LLP was pleased to sponsor and organize the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida’s (BGCCF) 2019 Teen Holiday Party, which was organized in support of the almost 90 teens who regularly participate at the Universal Club branch. Through the continued efforts of Orlando Partner and Co-Chair of the Real Estate Practice Group, Jennifer Slone Tobin, the holiday party was a success and included games, food and gifts for the teens.
Also contributing to the event were Orlando attorneys Michael Patrick Kaney and Jacob A. Kupp, who interacted with the teens over games of foosball, musical chairs and a competition to see who could make the fastest snowman out of toilet paper. The teens also enjoyed cookies, snacks and drinks complements of the firm, and were very appreciative to receive wrapped gifts provided by the Orlando office. Many of the gifts that people donate over the holidays are often intended for younger children, making coordinated efforts to provide gifts for older children of great importance.
Jennifer is a four-time Co-Chair of the BGCCF’s ‘Celebrate the Children’ and has been on the organization’s Board for nearly a decade. She has organized the firm’s involvement in this holiday event each year for the past nine years. Additionally, Michael serves on the Executive Leadership Team of Club Blue, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida’s young professionals association.
Established in 1944, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida’s mission it to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. According to the organization, by providing Club Members with academic support, extracurricular opportunities, and positive adult role models, they aim to break the cycle of poverty for future generations of Central Floridians.
