At Buchanan, Williams & O’Brien, community involvement is a cornerstone of our values. In March, we enjoyed partnering with two amazing organizations to support members of the Joplin community.
First off was our partnership with Soroptimist International of Joplin for their 4th Annual Comedy for Camp event. This global organization works to socially and economically empower women and girls.
The Joplin Comedy for Camp event, in particular, raises money to send foster children to summer camp. It was a fun event including a silent auction and a comedy show. The event raised approximately $15,000. Spectacular job, Joplin!! We were honored to have been a part of it.
Our second community event in March was The Baseball Bonanza, put on by Joplin NALA Read. Joplin NALA Read is a non-profit committed to fostering and strengthening literacy skills, enabling learners to reach their full potential.
The Baseball Bonanza, formerly known as the All-Star Spell Ball, raises awareness of adult literacy through a fun competition. Locals organize themselves into teams and compete in a game that combines spelling and baseball. BWO sponsored Joplin NALA Read’s Baseball Bonanza which raised approximately $7,000 this year. Thank you to all who participated!
Finally, BWO was pleased to take part in the 2019 Fur Ball, Boots and Bling Gala hosted by the Joplin Humane Society Animal Adoption & Resource Center. BWO donated some relaxation items from Savon and a $50 gift card from Good Dog Healthy Pet Market in Webb City, Missouri.
Joining in events like these is really rewarding for those of us at BWO. In addition to being here for all Joplin’s personal injury lawyer needs, we are happy to be a part of these community events, and it inspires us to see what our community can do when it comes together!
