19th Annual For the Public Good Gala Fundraiser (Recap)


Legal Aid Service of Broward County (LAS) and Coast to Coast Legal Aid of South Florida (CCLA) were proud to recognize the achievements of South Florida advocates for justice at their annual For the Public Good Gala fundraiser. The event, which was held December 1, 2021 at the Signature Grand in Davie, raised $100,000 to benefit the more than 20,000 children, seniors, veterans, homeless persons, survivors of domestic violence and other crimes, unaccompanied immigrant minors, and persons living with HIV/AIDS served by LAS and CCLA each year.

More than 415 lawyers, judges and members of the business community were in attendance to honor LAS’s longtime Executive Director, Anthony J. (Tony) Karrat, Esq., as well as The Honorable Thomas Lynch. This incredible evening, which featured networking, cocktails, live and silent auctions and a seated dinner, was emceed by veteran WPLG Local 10 anchor Kristi Krueger. Prominent Broward County business professionals Belinda Keiser of Keiser University and Howard Talenfeld of the Justice for Kids Division of Kelley Kronenberg served as honorary event chairpersons. Each has supported Legal Aid Programs in Broward and the annual gala for several years, contributing their time and reaching into their pockets to assist those in need.
