Miami, Fla., Feb. 25, 2013 – On Thursday, Feb. 21, Alvarez Arrieta & Diaz-Silveira LLP hosted an open-house event and art sale in support of the International Kids Fund (IKF) Wonderfund™.
Firm partner and IKF board member, Alejandro Arrieta stated, “In opening our practice last year, we made a commitment to give back to those organizations that make a true difference in the lives of others. We are extremely proud of the opportunity we can provide to raise awareness and funds for work done by IKF.”
IKF’s Wonderfund™, a program of Jackson Memorial Foundation, seeks to provide life-saving or life-changing medical care to children in need. This includes international children who cannot be treated within their native country, as well as children living in the United States who, without the assistance of IKF ‘s Wonderfund™, have no options for treatment. The fund ensures these children receive the best care possible at Holtz Children’s Hospital of the University Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center.
Niurka Del Valle, Director of Development, International Kids Fund said, “To date, more than 600 children, primarily from Latin America and the Caribbean, have benefitted from critical surgery, life-saving treatments and essential medical care that was not available in their home countries. The donation of work by Miami-based and Latin-American artists and the generosity of local businesses like Alvarez Arrieta & Diaz-Silveira make our work possible.”
Continued Arrieta, “Miami is the business gateway to the Americas. Each year, it also hosts some of the world’s finest contemporary art. As a boutique corporate transactional law firm, we are uniquely positioned to bring these concepts together in support of IKF’s Wonderfund™.”
