montgomery county bar association making a difference in the community Montgomery County Bar Association making a difference in the communityThe Montgomery County Bar Association presented a check to Brantwood Children’s Home on Monday, May 11, in the amount of $23,000. Four years ago, a desire to make an impact on the local community inspired the MCBA to establish an annual charity fundraising event. Past beneficiaries include MANE, Child Protect, Family Sunshine Center and the Family Guidance Center. The theme of this year’s event was “Les Bon Temps,” and featured Cajun cuisine, jazz music, and a silent auction.

The MCBA generally chooses a charitable organization that works with children and/or families. “Our members were interested in helping people in a way that will directly impact our community, and that’s how this event was created,” says Suzanne Duffey, MCBA Executive Director. “We were so pleased with the response this year, especially in this tough economy, and that everyone really reached out to support this effort and help those who need it.”

The mission of Brantwood Children’s Home is exclusively non-profit and is to operate in the best interest of the community while serving dependent, neglected and/or abused children by providing for and supervising their education, health and social adjustment into the community.
