Murtha Cullina Attorneys Support Muscular Dystrophy Association
May 24, 2012
HARTFORD, CT (May 24, 2011)…Murtha Cullina LLP attorneys Meredith C. Burns, Michael J. Donnelly, Jonathan S. Heinlein and Colleen O'Neill recently worked to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
As part of the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s “Lock Up” event, Murtha Cullina attorneys joined local businesses and community leaders in getting “arrested” for having a “big heart.” Event participants collected donations to “make bail,” and those funds will go towards supporting children and adults in the community who are living with neuromuscular disease.
Through a series of office-wide fundraising events that included a firm bake sale, a jeans day and donations, the attorneys and staff of Murtha Cullina raised $1,100 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Ms. Burns, Mr. Donnelly, Mr. Heinlein and Ms. O’Neill extended their charitable efforts outside of the firm and were able to raise an additional $1,450.
Specifically, the funds raised will provide flu shots, medical research, expert consultations, diagnostics and summer camp sessions to those in need of support.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association hosted the local “Lock Up” event May 23rd at City Steam Brewery.
