At Luhrsen Goldberg, our attorneys and staff members strongly believe in community involvement and devote considerable resources to organizations in the community we serve.
Our attorneys and staff are directly associated with several Manatee and Sarasota County-based organizations which the firm proudly supports, including:
The Mark Wandall Foundation
Attorney Christina Goldberg has proudly served as a member of the foundation’s Board of Directors since 2016. The Mark Wandall Foundation (TWMF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that facilitates support and programs for children, teens and young adults throughout the state of Florida who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or guardian.
Christina is trained as a volunteer for the foundation’s partnership with Comfort Zone Camp and participates in TMWF events and fundraisers in various capacities. Additionally, she has been instrumental in the TMWF’s scholarship program, working with others to overhaul and streamline the application process, requirements and judging rubric.
Operation Warrior Resolution
Attorney Julie Luhrsen was named to the Board of Directors for Operation Warrior Resolution (OWR) in 2021. OWR is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to transform veterans to health and wellness by providing innovative, holistic treatments for mental health to veterans and their family members and alleviating PTSD, anxiety and other mental health-related issues.
Take Stock in Children of Sarasota
Since 2021, attorney Christina Goldberg has served as a volunteer mentor for Take Stock in Children (TSIC). The group was established in 1995 as a non-profit organization in Florida to provide a unique opportunity for low-income and at-risk students — many from minority families — to escape the cycle of poverty through education. Students in the program have access to college scholarships and volunteer mentors, like Christina, who serve as a consistent source of support and guidance.
