Fort Lauderdale partner Brendan Aloysius Barry participated in Dillard Elementary’ s 5th Annual Career City. The firm has sponsored this event each year.
According to the organizers, 98% of Dillard Elementary students walk to school, are from single-parent homes and get their food intake while they are attending school. Most of the students have never traveled outside a five-mile radius of their neighborhood and many have never walked into a grocery store, an office supply store, a bank, a flower shop, or even a restaurant.
Career City was founded five years ago by Victoria Ranger-Nunez and Mike Nunez. This event shows the students of Dillard Elementary a glimpse of the business community surrounding their school.
