Attorneys from Capehart Scatchard’s Workers’ Compensation Department recently attended the Eighth Annual Gala for Kids’ Chance of New Jersey.  The event was held on July 21, 2022 at the Hilton in East Brunswick, N.J.

The Gala was a fundraiser for Kids’ Chance, a non-profit organization, created to provide educational opportunities and scholarships for the children of workers who were fatally or catastrophically injured on the job.  John Geaney and Lora Northen, shareholders in the firm, serve as members of the Kids’ Chance Board of Directors, and Director of Marketing, Carol Wright, serves as an Advisory Board member.

The highlight of this year’s Gala featured the presentation of scholarships to eleven students whose parents suffered fatal or physically catastrophic injuries while working.  Each student was awarded up to $10,000 for the upcoming school year.  Capehart Scatchard sponsored the $10,000 scholarship given to Alejandra Soto whose father lost an eye and suffered other injuries in a work-related accident in 2006.  Ms. Soto is a junior at Rutgers Newark School of Criminal Justice.
