Press Release
September 30, 2011

MIAMI, FL.- The tenants of Miami's premier Class-A office tower, 1450 Brickell, are proving that an office building can be far more than a place to come to work it can also create a sense of community and serve as a springboard for corporate giving. Beginning on October 3, the tenants of 1450 Brickell will launch a 1450 United Way Campaign for Early Literacy, organized by the law firm of Bilzin Sumberg Baena Price & Axelrod, LLP.

The 1450 Brickell United Way Campaign will begin on Monday, October 3 and continue through Friday, October 7 and will include a range of networking and fundraising activities. The campaign is designed to provide the building's office tenants with an opportunity to network and connect, while raising funds for the United Way of Miami-Dade.

The 1450 United Way Campaign is unique in that we are not just partnering with our colleagues within the firm, we are also partnering with our neighbors who share our civic commitment, said John C. Sumberg, managing partner of Bilzin Sumberg Baena Price & Axelrod, LLP. Our goal is to raise funds for this important cause, while at the same time, build alliances with like-minded companies to advance the interests of our community.
