The 2016 Sabadell Keymorada Invitational Fishing Tournament to benefit The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) is proud to announce that it has raised over $686,000 for the CCFA and to support the Sussman Crohn's & Colitis Center at the University of Miami. Along with its numerous Sponsors, over 150 law firms throughout Florida and the United States have joined forces to raise awareness of Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. These law firms, which usually go head to head in the courtroom, have found common ground in the battle against these debilitating diseases that often afflict children. The 2016 Law Firm Challenge Champion is Akerman LLP.
The Tournament is the brainchild of two brothers, Mitchell and Glenn Widom, attorneys in Miami with Bilzin Sumberg and Glenn L. Widom, P.A., who founded the event in 2005 after Mitch’s daughter, Taylor, was diagnosed with Crohn's. Together with Co-Chairs Alicia Widom and Ellen Shapiro, and thanks to the incredible support of the Tournament’s Sponsors, Participants and Guides, the Keymorada has raised over $5 million for the CCFA and the UM Crohn's & Colitis Center."
