Zarwin Baum Competes in Philly Business First Awards

January 13, 2014

Towards the end of 2013, Firstrust Bank announced the start of its 2nd Annual Philly’s Business First Awards which shines a spotlight on local businesses making a positive difference, as nominated and voted on by the public. Through this competition, Firstrust recognizes businesses that have displayed excellent business values. The nominations have closed and the final 20 finalists have been announced -  and chief among them is Philadelphia-based law firm Zarwin Baum DeVito Kaplan Schaer Toddy, P.C.!

From now until January 17, Zarwin Baum encourages individuals across the region to cast a vote for the firm here: www.bizfirstawards.com. Of the law firms in the region, Zarwin Baum is arguably the most creative at giving back to the community it serves. Annually, to kick off the NCAA’s March Madness, Zarwin Baum hosts its annual March Madness event at the Crystal Tea Room - 9 hours of tournament watching that brings out over 2500 guests, and in 2013, raised $40,000 for Philabundance and collected 1000 pounds of food. In 2013, the firm hosted the first ever PHILAlympics - a 90-minute competition held at the Wells Fargo Center in which the twelve (12) companies battled wits, athleticism, and general Philadelphia knowledge, all for the title of ‘Philadelphia’s Phunnest Company’ - and to raise $20,000 for the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House. And to usher in Fall, the firm annually hosts its Celebrity Casino Night, which raises money for the Easter Seals of Southeastern Pennsylvania. Last year, the event raised $15,000.

What’s more, every first Friday of the month, the firm hosts Denim Days in which attorneys are allowed to dress down and donate at least $1 to the charity chosen for that month. Charities that have benefited from Zarwin Baum’s Denim Days include the Sara’s Smiles Foundation, The Sierra Group Academy of Philadelphia, The Pennsylvania SPCA, the American Red Cross, and Mustaches for Kids.

Voting for the 2nd Annual Philly’s Business First Awards ends on January 17,  after which the winners will be announced. Zarwin Baum is competing for the ultimate first place prize of $15,000. Instead of ‘splitting’ the money with a local charity per the award guidelines, Zarwin Baum will be donating the full $15,000 to the Fresh Smiles Foundation.  It gets no more charity-minded than that!
