Attorneys from Petro Cohen recently attended the Kids’ Chance of NJ (KCNJ) Gala and presented a scholarship award at the event. For the past three years, the firm has partnered with the KCNJ organization to award a student with financial hardship a “Doctorate Degree” scholarship. The scholarship benefits young adults enduring financial burdens due to the loss or serious injury of a parent during a workplace accident.
The 2016-17 scholarship recipient was Scott Kwiatek of South Amboy, NJ, currently pursuing a Bachelors of Arts degree in Business at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). Frank and Susan Petro presented the $10,000 scholarship award to Scott at the KCNJ Gala (pictured below).
Special thank you to all our clients and friends who “liked” Petro Cohen on Facebook over the past month. With your help, the firm was able to raise an additional $1,000+ for Kids’ Chance of NJ!
Susan Petro joined her good friend Fran Coppola, who was honored at a luncheon Friday, June 24, 2016 at the Smithville Inn. Fran was named as the 2016 United Way “Power of the Purse” honoree for being an outstanding leader, advocate and philanthropist. Fran (left) is pictured with her husband, Tony, and Susan Petro. Congratulations and thank you for all you do for our community!
