Paul’s “Virtual” Car Wash to Benefit BBBSAZ

For the sixth year in a row, our Lerner and Rowe Gives Back team participated in Paul’s Car Wash to benefit the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona (BBBSAZ). 

And even though this year’s fundraiser is virtual, our team members still participated by washing our work vehicles at a Super Star Car Wash in Phoenix.

Kevin Rowe also virtually presented a $10,000 check that was later given to CBS 5 Chief Meteorologist Paul Horton. 

How to Participate:

Here’s how you can join us in giving back and helping raise funds for BBBSAZ from October 19 – October 23, 2020:

  2. Text PCW20 to 26989 to donate from your mobile phone.
  3. Donate online.

Merrillville High School Boys’ Basketball Team Sponsors

Lerner and Rowe is proud to sponsor the Merrillville High School Boys’ Basketball team for a second season! Supporting these young men was a no-brainer. Not only are they great players on the court, but they can often be found serving their community.

Night of Hope Gala Benefiting Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels

Night of Hope Gala benefiting Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels

Lerner and Rowe Gives Back donated $3,000 towards the Night of Hope Gala benefiting Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels. Our team feels uplifted to know that our contribution will be used to provide Comfycozys for Chemo Care packs for 60 little warriors fighting childhood cancer. 

Comfycozys are an adaptive apparel line featuring zippers, buttons, snaps, pockets, and openings for nurses to more discreetly access a young cancer patient’s port while allowing the child to remain comfortably covered. 

Funds raised during their annual gala are the reason they are able to offer support and free services to the many families impacted by childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Please consider joining us at any level of support to help Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels continue providing comfort and dignity to young warriors and their families.  

How You Can Bring Comfort to a Young Cancer Patient

Just like many other 2020 events, Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels’ annual gala has had to adapt to many challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, this year’s fundraising gala now provides a virtual component to help supporters remain socially distant, while still being involved. 

The limited in-person viewing seats are sold out, however, there are still a variety of ways you can help increase the reach and impact of the Night of Hope Gala to include: 

Live United: Valley Covid-19 Rebuilding and Recovery Fund

COVID-19 Relief and Recovery Fund

Lerner and Rowe partners with AltAz 93.3 in support of the Valley of the Sun United Way’s Valley COVID-19 Relief and Rebuilding Fund. 

Join us October 12 – 31 to help raise funds that will then be used to address hunger, homelessness, financial instability, and the educational and emerging needs of our Maricopa County neighbors brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Log on to altaz933.com to find out how you can help. Every dollar donated will make a difference. We’ve even committed to matching donations up to $3,000 to increase the reach of assistance offered to those in need.  

Thank you in advance for your support, and for living united!

$5,000 Sponsor for Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s 2020 Halloween Activities

Phoenix Children’s Hospital reached out to us for assistance with offsetting new costs associated with Halloween costumes for 360 patients. And since we didn’t want the children to miss out on a fun activity to help brighten their stay at the hospital, our team ecstatically donated $5,000 towards the hospital’s Fall Fun costume fund. 

Phoenix Children’s Hospital Halloween Fun Fall

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the hospital was able to accept community donations of regularly used items such as socks and toiletry items. However, the hospital now must purchase items directly from warehouses to reduce the number of times the items are touched by others. 

These added expenses eat away at the emotional and social support programs Phoenix Children’s provides to patients while they heal.   

How You Can Help Brighten the Spirits of Hospitalized Children

Here are three ways that you can join us in showing these recovering children some love and support:  

  1. Discover the many ways to give directly to the hospital at PhoenixChildrensFoundation.org 
  2. Gift a donation in-store or online via Spirit Halloween stores 
  3. Send FREE Halloween greetings to patients

Recap of 2020 Special Olympic Torch Run

Our Lerner and Rowe Gives Back team enjoyed the honor of sponsoring and participating in the Special Olympics Nevada Touch Run. Due to continued social gathering restrictions, the Special Olympics athletes could not join us, as in previous years. But that didn’t stop us from carrying the torch in a two-hour relay raising money for this vital charity.

Our team joined the law enforcement officers from Clark County School District Police Department, Clark County Detention, and North Las Vegas Police Department, to  walk and, or run carrying the Special Olympic Torch around the Clark High School track.

“Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys have been long-time fans and supporters of the athletes who participate in the Special Olympics. We thank Special Olympics Nevada and the Clark County School District Police Department for giving us the opportunity to participate with them in the Torch Run.” —Glen Lerner
