On April 22, 2015 Support Center for Child Advocates celebrated 28 years as the nation’s leading pro bono legal and social service advocacy organization at our Annual Benefit Reception & Auction. This year, we proudly recognize Kenneth C. Frazier, Chairman and CEO of Merck, with 2015 Judge Lois G. Forer Child Advocacy Award for his commitment to the health and well-being of youth and his advocacy for access to justice through pro bono representation.
The evening also allowed us to celebrate the extraordinary efforts of our friends who devote countless hours to improving the lives of vulnerable children. The 2015 Distinguished Advocates were Alfred R. Fuscaldo, Gibbons P.C.; Jason T. LaRocco, Fineman Krekstein & Harris P.C.; Daniel J. Luccaro, Cozen O’Connor; George D. Mosee, District Attorney’s Office of Philadelphia; Charles N. Persing, Bederson LLP; Lara Thane & Rae-Lynne Tuzzo, Adoptive Parents; Megan E. Watson, Berner Klaw & Watson LLP; and Lawrence J.
