Lerner & Rowe Gives Back is a charitable organization founded
by Kevin Rowe, managing partner of Lerner & Rowe, P.C.
Lerner & Rowe Gives Back is a nonprofit organization dedicated to extensive and various community outreach programs. The idea was inspired
by the 2000 movie “Pay it Forward”, where an intriguing assignment is given to a young boy from his social studies teacher. The assignment
was to create something to change the world, and put it into action, through direct action, in hopes of bringing a revolution in
an ever-widening circle of people completely unknown to one another.
We believe in paying forward the success our firm has achieved through our newly established foundation and team of employees. We work to advance
the missions of community organizations that serve children and families struggling from the aftermath of the recent economic downturn.
Any organization operating independently can only do so much. But collectively, through a network approach, we help one charitable organization
and in turn they “pay it forward” by helping families or another charitable organization. We hope our program will lead to social and community
changes on a much larger scale that will have a greater impact to those in need.
We believe it is our responsibility to advocate for and improve the lives of children who live in poverty, cope with the effects of illness
or disease, or otherwise need assistance. There is no reason that any child should go without. In addition to children in need, we serve
other various organizations in the hopes that our compassion touches the lives of the homeless, the hungry, the abused and sick, and even
to our four-legged friends.
We hope that our efforts will inspire our colleagues in the community to do the same. The greater need exists. The bigger difference is made
when we seek to directly better the lives of struggling individuals and families.
Join Lerner and Rowe Gives Back today, and see the difference you can make.
We are excited to share that thanks to the generosity of our community and individual sponsors, we raised $283K at the Lerner and Rowe Gives Back 5th Annual Charity Golf Classic! That is $83K more than last year. Most importantly, 100% of that amount will directly benefit local charitable groups and organizations throughout Arizona!
For those not able to join us for all the fun at the beautiful Talking Stick Golf Club, enjoy the following images and video that captured a few highlights.
In Maricopa County, many school children have to face each day without the guarantee of a nourishing, wholesome breakfast in the morning. We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s the fuel your body uses to power your body and mind. This is why it is of the utmost important that children are properly fed before beginning their school day. Valley of the Sun United Way seeks to end this concern for low-income families by providing nutritious breakfast to 130 schools in our county.
Lerner and Rowe Gives Back are proud to support their efforts by being a $5k Supporting Sponsor of the We Are UNITED- Women United Luncheon. This signature event seeks to raise funds to put towards hunger-ending efforts, such as Breakfast in the Classroom and WeekEnd Hunger Backpacks, in Maricopa County. The Luncheon takes place on Friday, May 18th, at Arizona Biltmore Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona. The Luncheon will take place from 11:30am to 1:30pm, with a VIP reception preceding the event at 10:30am.
Lerner and Rowe Gives Back would like to encourage you to donate your time and effort, along with financial donations if you can, in order to create positive changes in our local community.
As a special treat this year, the event’s keynote speaker is none other than multi-faced artist and entertainer Vanessa Williams. She is known worldwide for her musical talents and television and movie appearances, with a career that has spanned decades. She is one of the most respected figures in the entertainment industry. In 2007, Vanessa Williams was honored with her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Women United is more than excited to have her present as the keynote speaker for the VIP Reception.

‘Hip to Chip’ Free Microchip Program Benefits MCACC Adopted Dogs
The ‘Hip to Chip” program was created from a partnership between the #LovePup Foundation and our team at Lerner and Rowe Gives Back. Through this program, every dog adopted from a Mesa or Phoenix Maricopa County Animal Care & Control (MCACC) location will be sent home with a free microchip!
‘Hip to Chip’ May 1st Program Launch
Today was the launch date for the free Phoenix and Mesa ‘Hit to Chip’ microchip program. We were excited to join our community partners and witness the first adopted dog to benefit from the program.
“We are excited to partner with #LovePup to fund this progressive initiative. We know that the love and happiness a four-legged family member brings is one of a kind,” says attorney Kevin Rowe. “We are a family of avid dog-lovers, ourselves. Every dog deserves to find a good home filled with love. Microchips make sure that they’re never separated from that home.”

The Benefits of Microchips
Microchips offer many benefits to both animals and pet owners, such as:
Making it quicker for owners to be reunited with a lost pet.
Easier to identify a lost dog.
Less worry for pet owner – no collar or tag to loose.
Reduction in the number of lost / homeless dogs on the streets.
And lastly, microchips help reduce the number of unidentified strays at animal shelters.

Lerner and Rowe proudly announces their sponsorship of the 4th Annual Pro-Am Golf Tournament in conjunction with the Ronald McDonald House. The tournament has grown to two courses at the Grayhawk Golf Club on Wednesday, May 2, 2018. The event starts with registration at 7:00 a.m. with a lunch, raffle drawing and awards ceremony to follow.
4th Annual Pro-Am Golf Tournament
The 4th Annual Pro-Am Golf Tournament gives participants the opportunity to interact and play with champions, tour and local pros. Unlike a normal competition, usually decided by the low net score or via match play, pro-am golf tournaments generally are best ball, low net score or a scramble format. Lerner and Rowe invites you to join them at the Grayhawk Golf Club. Tournament proceeds help with the costs for families staying at the Valley’s three houses, two located in central Phoenix and one in Mesa.
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Phoenix helps children and their families by providing a ‘home away from home’ for those travelling to the city to receive treatment for illnesses, both serious and life-threatening. Families often stay for extended periods, from days up to months at a time. This non-profit organization never turns away a family. For more information about this wonderful organization, visit their website.
