Belinda Keiser and Edward Zebersky were honored by the Legal Aid Service of Broward County and Coast to Coast Legal Aid of South Florida for making “a tremendous difference to these organizations, the cause of equal justice, and the local community.”

More than 400 lawyers, judges, and members of the community joined Legal Aid Service of Broward County (LAS) and Coast to Coast Legal Aid of South Florida (CCLA) to celebrate the past and look toward the future of the organizations during the 20th Annual For the Public Good Gala fundraiser.

The event raised more than $131,000 to ensure LAS and CCLA continue to provide free civil legal representation, advice, and education to more than 20,000 eligible clients in need. The event proceeds help to provide a voice and justice for children, seniors, veterans, homeless persons, persons living with HIV/AIDS, survivors of domestic violence and other crimes, families facing eviction, and unaccompanied immigrant minors in our communities, according to the legal aid organizations.
