For the third year in a row, LAF is participating in the Veterans Charity Challenge, sponsored by Crowdrise. The Challenge is a six-week effort to raise money for nonprofit organizations working to help veterans, which kicks off on Memorial Day and runs until the 4th of July. With the challenge coming to a close, LAF reached out to Mark Sampson, a member of the LAF Young Professionals Board and an associate at Segal McCambridge, to see if the firm would consider sponsoring the final week of the Challenge.
Segal McCambridge Singer & Mahoney Ltd. agreed to sponsor the LAF Veterans’ Rights Project Charity Challenge in its final week. If LAF can raise $1,000 by June 30, Segal McCambridge will match their efforts with an additional $1,000, with all proceeds benefiting LAF’s Veterans’ Rights Project. We are hoping this will help land us a spot in the top 3 finishers’ category, so we can win even more cash for LAF. The top three finishers in the Challenge win an additional $10,000, $5,000 or $3,000.
We are thrilled to have Mark’s involvement with the YPB, especially with this exciting partnership. Mark has been involved with the YPB for one year now, and has quickly become a valued member. He has been extremely active attending and supporting YPB events and also serves on the Outreach Committee. At Segal McCambridge, he is an associate attorney practicing products liability and toxic tort litigation. In his free time he enjoys traveling, sailing, and watching Notre Dame Football.
Mark shared with us why he chose to become a member of LAF’s Young Professional Board: “I joined the YPB because I wanted to get involved in supporting the invaluable services that LAF provides to those in our community who otherwise would not have access to legal counsel representation when they need it most. Securing a sponsorship from Segal McCambridge for this Challenge was an excellent opportunity to help LAF raise money for one of its most critical projects.”
LAF’s Veterans’ Rights Project is dedicated to ensuring that low-income service members, veterans, and their families receive advocacy, legal representation, and educational services regarding the enforcement of their legal rights and benefits, both with the Department of Veterans Affairs as well as in a variety of other civil legal areas, including Consumer, Housing, Family, and Public Benefits law.
LAF is very excited about this partnership, and is grateful Segal McCambridge realizes the importance of supporting a project that benefits some of the most vulnerable, and most deserving, members of our community. If you would like to help us meet our challenge and win an additional $1000, please donate here.
Thank you Segal McCambridge Singer & Mahoney, and thank you Mark!
