In partnership with the Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity, the Dallas Bar Association sponsors a new Habitat home build each spring. The DBA has partnered with Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity since 1991 to build homes for deserving families in the community.
Gardere has participated in the annual event since 1994, raising more than $130,000 collectively. The Firm’s 2014 fundraising efforts were led by Partner James C. (Jim) Scott. Gardere was once again the lead donor with funds totaling over $23,000 — the largest donation in Firm history.
“I am unbelievably pleased with Gardere’s fundraising efforts and participation this year to benefit Habitat for Humanity,” says Mr. Scott. “Gardere is helping build Dallas to make it a better place. It is rewarding to know our contributions will improve the lives of families in our community.”
