The Dworken, Hillman, LaMorte & Sterczala "Jeans for
Charity" program encourages employees to donate money
weekly to a fund that is matched by the firm, in exchange for
allowing participants to wear jeans on Fridays. The Jeans
for Charity program has donated more than $24,000 to local
charities since it was established in 2004.
This year's beneficiary, The Children's Center of Hamden,
is a private, nonprofit, multi-service agency dedicated to
providing quality treatment and education in a safe, nurtur-
ing environment for children and families in the least
restrictive setting possible.

advocacy community education
Fifteen partners and employees at Reynolds & Rowella
raised more than $5,000 in support of men's health through
their participation in the "Movember" campaign. Clean-
shaven men participate by agreeing to grow moustaches for
30 days beginning on November 1 each year. Known as "Mo
Bros," participants become talking billboards for men's health
issues, and are encouraged to raise funds through sponsor-
ships. Founded in 2006, the Movember movement is active
in 14 countries worldwide. In the U.S., funds raised support
the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, the
Lance Armstrong Foundation. At Reynolds & Rowella, the
top two mustachioed fundraisers, who together raised
$3,035, were Managing Partner Frank Rowella Jr. and
Partner Ben Maini.
