07 Jun Food For Thought GALA- Generating Essential Funds
Gluckstein Personal Injury Lawyers were proud to sponsor the Food For Thought Gala in Niagara. The event rose out of the need to generate essential funds to maintain and restore valuable services which the Brain Injury Association of Niagara provides for its community. 100% of the proceeds from Ticket Sales, Sponsorship and a Silent Auction go directly to BIAN, a not-for-profit organization that is run almost entirely by volunteers with only one paid staff member.
On Thursday June 6, 2013, The Hosts of BIAN Took us Coast To Coast!
