The Dolce Firm: Committed to Our Community

September 30th, 2014

Dolce Panepinto takes our commitment to our community very seriously. We are grateful to be in a position to assist local organizations who are dedicated to bettering Western New York. Just as in years past, we have been very active in the local community as we continue to look forward to Buffalo’s bright future.

This school year, Dolce Panepinto donated school supplies to underprivileged children across the City of Buffalo. In cooperation with a number of Buffalo Public Schools, we filled the complete school supply list for over 150 grade school and junior high school students. The firm purchased over 150 backpacks and our employees spent a handful of nights and weekends shopping for supplies and filling backpacks so that students would be able to start the school year with all of the necessary supplies.

Our firm strongly believes that a quality education is of the utmost importance. We understand that the future of our community lies in the hands of our children and we think it is extremely important to supply them with the tools necessary to make the most of their education. Many of the students have since sent us incredibly heartwarming thank you cards and letters. We appreciate their gratitude and hope to expand the outreach of this initiative in coming years.

As part of our ongoing commitment to labor, Dolce Panpeinto was proud to sponsor the Buffalo Laborers’ Local 210 Scholarship Fund Danny Fulcher Memorial Golf Outing. The event raised money for the Local’s college scholarship fund and gave the hard-working laborers a much needed day of fun and relaxation. A number of Dolce Panepinto attorneys participated including longtime Local 210 Laborer Donald Panepinto, and Workers’ Compensation Attorneys Holly Schoenborn and Colleen Malchow. A great time was had by all and we were very happy to have been a part of it.

This past August, an organization known as The Dude Hates Cancer held their annual fundraising bowling tournament. Dolce Panepinto was on hand to sponsor the event and a number of employees formed a team and participated as well. The Dude Hates Cancer holds annual fundraising tournaments in Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and Buffalo. All of the proceeds go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). This year’s Buffalo event raised over $44,000. Since its inception in 2006, the Dude Hates Cancer has raised over $500,000 for the LLS. A great time was had by all and we cannot wait to do it again next year.

Attorney Colleen Malchow recently became a member of the Board of Directors of the Lancaster Youth Foundation, an organization which supports programs and activities that provide opportunities for youth development and delinquency prevention. Ms. Malchow has helped organize a number of successful fundraising activities that our firm was happy to support, including Trivia Night and Teen Idol.

Dolce Panepinto considers it a privilege to be in a position to support these wonderful organizations and initiatives. We are always looking for opportunities to expand our outreach.
