Tampa attorney Lauren Taylor serves as a Board Member of the Tampa Chapter of After-School All-Stars (ASAS), a non-profit organization that provides comprehensive after-school programs that keep children safe and help them succeed in school and life.
ASAS recently held a “Nets and Networking” event with the Tampa Bay Lightning, which sponsored more than 40 middle school students to attend a hockey game, a first for all of them. The students rode the Zamboni, pressed the Lightning coil, and cheered the team on to victory.
Last year, Lauren founded the organization’s Young Professionals Board, known as the A-Club, for up-and-coming industry leaders. Among its members are Shutts attorneys Kristin Morris, Christopher Hamilton, and Nicole Zaworska.
For their next event, ASAS has partnered with The First Tee of Tampa Bay to watch the opening round of the U.S. Open on June 14th at Miller’s Ale House, located at 3860 W. Columbus Drive, Tampa, FL 33607. Doors open at 4 p.m., and a $20 donation is suggested.
