Community Involvement
Berger Kahn Participates in OCBF Project Youth’s OC Marathon Fundraiser
Berger Kahn is once again fundraising for the Orange County Bar Foundation Project Youth OC Marathon event. Typically, Berger Kahn team members, along with family and friends, run the OC marathon, half marathon, or 5k in order to garner funds for the Project Youth program. This year’s event will be held virtually. Associates Andrew Wyatt, Mallory Yumol, Jamie Rice, Michael Procopio, Walker Macon, Jay Shaaban, and Nandita Nayyar will be participating in this year’s event. Law clerks Brennan Lund, Victoria Yim, and Daniel Lim will be participating along with Paralegal Hannah Hong. Partners Erin Ezra and Heather Whitmore, as well as Shareholder David Ezra, will also be running for Project Youth. Project Youth OCBF is a non-profit organization committed to promoting the health, safety, and education of Orange County youth. Many families have been hit particularly hard by COVID-19, some of which are struggling just to get food on the table. Along with Project Youth’s original mission to provide juvenile diversion, health education, and higher education mentorship, OCBF is also providing food care packages, gift cards, wellness checks, emotional support, and COVID-19 resources/ education to students and their families at this time.
