Congratulations! Notables gathered to celebrate Edie Laquer, who was honored by Legal Services of Greater Miami, Inc. at the Rubell Family Collection. Laquer was recognized in commemoration of the establishment of The Edie Laquer Foundation Women and Children’s Rights Endowed Attorney Chair. Laquer, a generous philanthropist to numerous worthwhile charitable organizations in South Florida and beyond, has also been a legendary force in the commercial real estate industry for more than 30 years. The elegant event welcomed more than 150 guests and the affair was sponsored by SunTrust Private Wealth.
“We are so very grateful to Edie for being a trailblazer and establishing the first Endowed Attorney Chair at Legal Services,” said Marcia K. Cypen, Executive Director. “Her vision and philanthropic leadership will make a lasting impact on women and children in our community for generations to come.”
