Kimberly Sims will serve on the Membership Committee of Attorneys Serving the Community (ASC) in 2016-2017. ASC is a dynamic volunteer organization of over 400 women lawyers and law students from the Dallas/Fort Worth area, whose mission is to bring together women lawyers to support local non-profit organizations whose programs benefit women, children or families. ASC is also committed to providing its members with leadership and networking opportunities as it carries out its primary mission of serving the community.
Each year, ASC presents fundraising events that support its selected beneficiary: a luncheon, a silent auction and a family fun run (“Heart & Sole 5K”). ASC’s annual benefiiciary receives not only all of the money raised by the events, but also enjoys increased public awareness of its services.
ASC’s beneficiary for 2016-2017 is Junior Players, providing free after-school and summer arts education programming to over 7000 North Texas K-12 students each year in underserved areas of the community. Junior Players’ programs promote intellectual growth, mental well-being and independent life skills — in short, Junior Players transforms lives.
