Thursday night, the stars shined brightly in downtown Savannah as The Mediation Center of the Coastal Empire held it’s 7th annual fundraiser. The Mediation Center serves all of Southeast Georgia, providing civil and domestic mediation services, peer mediation services at schools, restorative conferences, youth court training and support, and corporate coaching for conflict resolution as well as peace building initiatives throughout the community.
The Manely Firm has long partnered with The Mediation Center, proudly serving as a Beacon level sponsor of Thursday’s event, as well as sponsoring previous fundraisers and the Mediation Center’s annual Peace in the Park in the fall each year. I am particularly proud to serve as President of the current Board of Directors, which is comprised of community leaders throughout many professions serving the families of southeast Georgia!
The Anchored in the Community event featured a silent raffle-style auction, buffet dinner, a photo booth, dancing, speeches from three outstanding high schoolers who have taken on leadership roles for peace in their schools, and several coveted awards to attorneys, mediators, and community partners who led the way in the furtherance of the Mediation Center’s objectives.
The event happens annually in late January/early February. Please make plans to join us next year at the 8th annual fundraiser for a night of fun, networking, and celebration and support of more mindful conflict resolution. May we all strive for more peaceful resolutions of the conflicts that surround daily life, in 2024 and beyond!
