Continuance Granted for Child Safety Charity
Southwest Florida Lawyers Helping Children, Inc., a 501(c)(3) charity has changed the date of their inaugural event Chili Challenge to Saturday, March 19th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Six Bends Harley Davidson. The inaugural Chili Challenge was the brainchild of Carmen Dellutri, founder of the Dellutri Law Group. This annual event will bring together lawyers in a “chili court”, local teams in an open competition and the local community to raise funds to help children in Lee County. A portion of the proceeds derived from the event will be used to help promote child safety in our local community.

In addition to the chili cook-off there will be vendors, raffles, kid zone and the much-anticipated Harley Davidson demo truck.
Dellutri wanted to have a family fun-filled event that would help promote child safety in our area. “A chili challenge was an exciting prospect”, shares Dellutri, however this one has the twist of inviting entrants with a connection to law profession within the local community, from attorneys to mediators and others, together for a great cause. “Children are our most precious gifts to the planet, they need to learn to protect themselves early on,” states Dellutri. “We have a community of fellow law professionals who are always ready and willing to step up and help others. Therefore, we challenge all of our Attorneys to form a team and step out for the Chili Court”.
