Richards Layton Attorney Links Two Charitable Organizations to Help Puerto Rico
April 6, 2018
Richards, Layton & Finger’s Russ Silberglied connected the charitable foundation of legendary New York Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera with the ABI Endowment Fund for a benefit for Puerto Rico. This event, held at the New York Athletic Club in Manhattan on April 4, raised much-needed funds to help Puerto Ricans still suffering from the devastation of Hurricane Maria. Approximately 100 members of the bankruptcy and restructuring community turned out to enjoy food, drinks, and conversation and to support this important project. Mr. Silberglied is general counsel of the Mariano Rivera Foundation, where he also serves on the board, provides pro bono legal advice, and runs or assists with special projects and events.
