Chuhak & Tecson wears denim for Chicago Metropolitan Battered Women’s Network

September 10, 2013

Chuhak & Tecson recently held a Jeans Day to raise money for Chicago Metropolitan Battered Women’s Network’s Wear that You Care Day, a city-wide law firm event that asked participants to donate at least $5 to wear denim to the office.

Chuhak & Tecson attorneys and staff raised over $1,500, 50 percent more than the firm’s original goal.

CMBWN is a not for profit organization that focuses on education and outreach programs to help fight domestic violence in the Chicago community. All money raised went to CMBWN’s Annual Court Watch Project, a yearly report written by community volunteers who observe and compile data from the Cook County Domestic Court. The goal of the Court Watch Report is to improve the overall effectiveness of the judicial system in Chicago.

Chuhak & Tecson partnered with CMBWN in spring 2010 for the firm’s biannual Women Helping Women event. Guests formed an assembly line and packed over 200 bags of personal care items for CMBWN’s network of women’s shelters.
