TRW Law supports Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute and Voices for Children by participating in and sponsoring two fun filled events.

Stuart, FL, April 17th, 2018 – The Law Offices of Travis R. Walker, P.A. has two busy weekends coming up with their sponsorships of the Fort Pierce Yacht Club Charity Poker Run on April 22nd and the Be a Hero Baseball Game on April 28th.   We hope these events give our staff an opportunity to meet and mingle with people in our community who share the same support for the charitable causes our firm sponsors.

The Fort Pierce Yacht Club Charity Poker Run, on April 22nd, will support local marine research at the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute.  The proceeds for this event will sponsor a scholarship for an Indian River State College student to participate in a summer internship conducting marine research at the Institute.  This internship is a 10-week summer internship and gives students an opportunity to conduct a research project in a real-world setting.  The internship will serve as the Capstone project for the recipient’s degree and will include a written report, which is also presented in a public forum.  Our coastal regions have an estimated $4 billion per year impact on the state of Florida, but more importantly, are home to thousands of species of plants and animals.  Florida’s coastal areas are vulnerable to pollution, nutrient runoff, over fishing, and climate change which affect the ecosystem on land and in the sea.  Harbor Branch’s research focuses on these issues and what impact they have on the health and diversity of plants and animals as well as on the local population.  Be sure to look out for the TRW Law Boat which will participate in the Poker Run!

The following weekend, we will attend the “Be a Hero Night Baseball Game” at the St. Lucie Mets Stadium.  This event is organized by Voices for Children which is an organization that raises funds to support the efforts and activities of the state-funded Guardian Ad Litem Program of Florida.  The St. Lucie Mets will play the Palm Beach Cardinals so bring your friends from our southern neighbor county, Palm Beach, and help support our abused, neglected, and abandoned children.  Buying a ticket to the game through Voices for Children results in a direct $4.00 donation to the organization.  The firm is happy to be able to invite clients, staff member’s families, and chamber partners to the event with our sponsorship. The game will feature exclusive “Be a Hero” Spiderman-themed jerseys which will later be auctioned off, as well as post-game fireworks and raffles.   We hope everyone will join us in supporting this great cause at this fun event!!

Our staff has been talking about these two events for weeks, so we hope our community joins in our excitement by attending them as well.  The Law Offices of Travis R. Walker, P.A. enjoys sponsoring events we can participate in because it gives us a chance to meet more of the people in our beloved community while helping a local organization.
