With the WPT Foundation Ladies’ Night Invitational fast approaching, we thought it time to look at another of the worthy charities that will be benefitting from this special event.
Chosen as the charity of choice by Jessica Dawley, the Domestic Violence Project of the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County is dedicated to providing free, high-quality legal advice to victims of domestic violence. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, nearly 5,400 domestic violence cases were reported in Palm Beach County in 2012, and national statistics suggest that one in four women will encounter some form of domestic violence in her lifetime.
“The Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County’s Domestic Violence Project is honored to have been chosen as one of the six charities represented at the final table of the WPT Foundation Ladies’ Night Invitational,” said Palm Beach County Legal Aid Society Director, Robert Bertisch. “We are extremely proud of the important work being done by our Domestic Violence Project staff in representing not only victims of stalking and cyberstalking, but survivors of all types of domestic violence. As part of our mission of providing high quality civil legal representation free of charge to victims of domestic abuse, we are dedicated to ensuring that victims and their families are able to maintain their personal safety, protect themselves from future violence and experience a safe and stable environment.”
