Burr Hosts Orange Center Elementary School Chorus in Orlando Office

The students, many of whom had never been in a downtown building, were given a tour of the SunTrust Tower before performing several holiday songs for the attorneys and staff. Following the performance, Denise Dell-Powell, a partner with the firm, presented a $2,500 holiday donation to Orange Center Elementary School in honor of the firm’s clients. Santa Claus also made an appearance, presenting the students with books donated by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, one of the world’s largest providers of pre-K – 12 education solutions and longest-established publishing houses. The visit concluded with holiday treats and a small reception for the students, attorneys and staff.

“We are honored to have this opportunity that we hope will make a difference for these young students by encouraging them to make good life decisions,” said Jim Pratt, managing partner of Burr & Forman’s Orlando office. “Bringing these students into our offices shows them a different side of downtown than many have previously experienced. Hopefully this inside look at the buildings downtown will help them see they will have opportunities in the future if they get a solid education, set goals, and work hard.”

The visit from Orange Center Elementary School is a part of the firm’s ongoing commitment to Central Florida’s education programs. Burr & Forman has partnered with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to donate books to the entire student body at Orange Center Elementary School – in addition to the books donated during the Orlando office visit. The books will be presented to the school later in the holiday season.
