The SC Bar highlights the Goings Law Firm of Columbia for its charitable $100,000 donation to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance.
The firm served as the presenting sponsor for the Bottoms Up Invitational hosted by South Carolina’s own Craig Melvin, an anchor of NBC’s Today Show. The event took place in Norwalk, Connecticut, and altogether, over $1 million was raised.
In memory of Craig’s brother Lawrence who died of colorectal cancer at the age of 43, the Bottoms Up Invitational brought together friends and colleagues all in support of raising money and awareness for those suffering from colorectal cancer.
“Our firm was honored to contribute $100,000 to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance for this special event. Every day we work hard to improve the lives of our clients who have been seriously injured, and we take our responsibility to give back to others very seriously, especially wonderful organizations such as the Colorectal Cancer Alliance,” stated Robert F. Goings, founder of the firm.
Colorectal cancer is extremely common and deadly, however, is highly preventable with timely screening and more funding. The Colorectal Cancer Alliance is the largest and most established national non-profit organization focused on ending colorectal cancer.
