Managing Partner Barry Mandelbaum of Mandelbaum Salsburg Lazris & Discenza, P.C. Honored at the 2012 Steps to Independence Celebration
Cerebral Palsy of North Jersey (CPNJ), honored real estate attorney Barry Mandelbaum, of the West Orange law firm of Mandelbaum Salsburg, at its 2012 Steps to Independence Celebration, held October 17 at the Crystal Plaza in Livingston. The event was the most successful fund-raiser in the 60-year history of the agency, drawing more than 350 guests and raising more than $538,000.
Mandelbaum was honored for his efforts on behalf of CPNJ, garnering support for the fund-raiser from a broad network of family, friends and business associates.
Commented Mandelbaum, “While I was the honoree for the event, the event was not about me. This was an opportunity for me to introduce CPNJ to some wonderfully caring and generous individuals and organizations in the community. The funds raised will impact the lives of hundreds of individuals with disabilities, many of whom could be our friends and neighbors. I’m so glad to have had the opportunity to be a part of this event and look forward to continuing to work on behalf of CPNJ and everyone they serve.”
