Head to Mizner Park Amphitheater on Jan. 13 for the inaugural Bresky Bash an afternoon of music, food and entertainment benefitting the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County.
Enjoy festivities including a community dance and mural art from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event is presented by the Law Offices of Robin Bresky.
Bresky is the founder of her law firm, past president of the Florida Association of Women Lawyers and serves on the Florida Bar Association’s Board of Governors and LASPBC board.
“We are so excited about the inaugural Bresky Bash, our first large-scale collaboration for justice in South Palm Beach County,” said LASPBC Executive Director Robert Bertisch, Esq.
Keeping the crowd entertained will be South Florida attorney and nationally sought-after broadcast analyst Mark Eiglarsh. You may have seen Eiglarsh on TV shows like The View, Dr. Phil and Dr. Drew.
DJ Nikko Capria from Nikko Entertainment will keep the tunes pumping and there will be food trucks, balloon artists, face painters and all sorts of children’s activities following the theme of the day “In Justice For All.”
Bresky said the bash has a tri-fold mission of raising awareness of the Legal Aid Society, increasing education of the work the society does and raising funds to help expand services.
Admission costs $10 per adult. Kids 17 and under enter for free. Proceeds from ticket sales and a percentage from food truck and vendor sales will be donated to LASPBC. This year, the funds will help victims of domestic and elder abuse.
“A lot of people can’t afford an attorney,” she said.
Her goal is to bring more awareness to what the Legal Aid Society does to those who live in South Palm Beach County.
The highlight of the event will be the first-ever Palm Beach County “Community Dance for Justice.” The dance will be created and led by Boca’s Dance With Me Dance Studio professionals.
The Community Justice Dancers an ensemble of legislators and government officials, presidents from several Florida bar associations, attorneys, retired judges and nonprofit advocates will take the stage to perform the routine they have been practicing. Then, the professionals will lead the Community Dance for Justice for all to follow along to.
“This is not a competition in any way, but rather an opportunity for leaders and advocates to ‘take a lead part’ in an inspiring high-energy and engaging community-unifying event to support the Legal Aid Society of PBC,” Bresky said. “In Palm Beach County — where we live, work, play and learn — we know that domestic and elder abuse continues to rise (much in silence) and as colleagues in the legal and civic community we can make a difference.”
Catch officials like County Commissioner Robert Weinroth, Esq., Mayor Scott Singer, Esq, Councilman Andy Thomson, Esq. on the stage.
Dance With Me Studio co-owners and Dancing With the Stars celebrities Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Valentin Chmerkovskiy said they are proud to be a part of the event, “Because dance ‘unites and uplifts’ both individuals and groups, we are the perfect partner in driving the mission ‘in justice for all’ to support those most vulnerable.”
The fun won’t stop when the event ends. Event-goers will also have the opportunity to create a “Hands Up in Justice for All” themed mural and receive free admission to the Boca Raton Museum of Art following the Bresky Bash, from 3 p.m. to closing.
