In celebration of Lawrence Gordon, Prime Time’s board of directors’ vice president’s 70th birthday, Prime Time Palm Beach County received $2,880 in generous donations. Of the amount received, the Law Office of Salesia Smith-Gordon matched donations with a $1,000 contribution. In lieu of presents, guests attending a May birthday celebration for Gordon were asked to donate to Prime Time, an organization that Gordon has devoted more than 12 years as board member providing wise counsel, direction and vision.
“Lawrence Gordon (pictured middle) has been and continues to be a strong advocate for children and families in Palm Beach County through his leadership on Prime Time’s Board of Directors,” said Suzette L. Harvey (pictured left), president/CEO of Prime Time. “This is the second time that Mr. Gordon used the occasion of his birthday to not only raise funds for Prime Time, but to provide staff with a platform to talk about our work in the community. The match from his wife Salesia Smith-Gordon’s (pictured right) law firm just speaks to the incredible commitment and generosity of these two extraordinarily giving individuals.”
