Miami, FL – Bilzin Sumberg Baena Price & Axelrod LLP recently partnered with fellow tenants of the office tower 1450 Brickell Avenue in the 2nd annual week-long campaign to benefit United Way of Miami-Dade. "1450 Connect" included a series of networking and fundraising events and a food drive to serve families in need through United Way's Community Cupboard.
Events included a "CEO Circuit" speed networking event featuring Bilzin Sumberg managing partner, John C. Sumberg, and other CEOs in the building who shared career advice with young professionals. Bilzin Sumberg hosted a Women's Luncheon featuring Boo Zamek, founder of online newsletter JustAskBoo, who spoke about her career successes and challenges.
