Miami, FL – The Bilzin Sumberg Dodge Squad faced off against three other South Florida law firms in the recent "Dare to Dodge" Dodgeball Tournament to raise funds for the United Way of Miami-Dade.

Bilzin Sumberg attorneys and staff competed against teams from Akerman Senterfitt, Carlton Fields and Greenberg Traurig at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami last week. Entry fees paid by participants and supporters were donated to the United Way. Former National Basketball Association star, Alonzo Mourning, and former power lifting world champion, Big James Henderson, attended the event to cheer on the Bilzin Sumberg Dodge Squad.

"The fundraiser was a great reason to join forces with our legal counterparts and 'Live United' in support of a larger goal," said Albert E. Dotson, Jr., Government Relations & Land Development partner and Coach of the Bilzin Sumberg Dodge Squad. “We look forward to making this tournament an annual community event and hope to have even more firms involved next year.”

Bilzin Sumberg's participation in the tournament was part of Bilzin Sumberg Cares, the firm's community involvement program that provides the Bilzin Sumberg community with volunteer opportunities to work together to benefit charitable organizations in South Florida and beyond.

Now in its sixth year, Bilzin Sumberg Cares has partnered with organizations including United Way of Miami-Dade, Voices for Children Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America and numerous other non-profit organizations. This year’s projects have included landscaping and painting murals at Norwood Elementary school in Miami Gardens, assisting athletes in the Miami-Dade County Special Olympics, holding book drives for Goodwill Industries and Norwood Elementary, and collecting baby supplies for homeless mothers at the Lotus House Women’s Shelter.
