The show must go on and despite the rain, the second annual Bresky Bash 2020 – “A Concert for Community,” valiantly forged ahead bringing out a decent crowd on Jan. 23 at the Mizner Park Amphitheater in support of the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County.
The Legal Aid Society provides high quality civil legal advice, representation and education to the county’s underserved populations and this year is expanding their outreach and advocacy to veterans and their families.
“We’re happy people came out tonight for our concert and our efforts to raise funds and awareness for the Legal Aid Society, especially in the South County area,” said Robin Bresky, whose firm, the Law Offices of Robin Bresky sponsors the event.
Featuring live music from the 60s and 80s, by Decades Rewind, the show featured 60 songs, 100 costume changes and favorites from Queen, Billy Joel, Whitney Houston and Earth Wind & Fire, among others.
Bob Bertisch, the Executive Director of the Legal Aid Society for more than 30 years says, “Robin is a big supporter of our Legal Aid Society and this fundraiser will help us expand our veterans’ advocacy project.”
“We want to serve those individuals who have served us,” Bertisch said.
Also in the crowd was South Palm Beach County Bar Association’s Executive Director, Seema Patel.
“It’s great to see so many in the legal profession turn out to support Robin’s efforts on behalf of the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County,” Patel said. “People come from all counties and it’s a well-respected event, with all the proceeds benefitting Legal Aid.”
Food trucks lined the perimeter of the amphitheater, and people were mixing, mingling and sipping cocktails under a large tent.
Tequisha Myles, supervising attorney with the elder law and fair housing departments of the Legal Aid Society came out despite the threat of rain.
“We’re excited to increase our presence in the South County area, especially Boca Raton, Delray and Boynton Beach,” said Myles, who notes that the Legal Aid office is based in West Palm Beach. “Robin does a great job in getting the word out. We want people to know we are here to serve as a resource and available to serve these communities as well.”
