Attorneys from the Young Lawyers Divisions in Maricopa and Pima Counties brought smiles to nearly 400 disadvantaged children at their annual holiday parties held in Phoenix and Tucson.

In Phoenix, the Maricopa County Young Lawyers Division hosted 100 children at Peter Piper Pizza on Saturday, December 11, 2010. The children from the Sunshine Group Home received two movie vouchers as well as tokens for the arcade games and activities. And of course, pizza. Lots of pizza!

In Tucson, the Pima County Young Lawyers Division hosted nearly 300 children at Pump It Up on Friday, December 17, 2010. The children from St. Nicholas of Myra Adoption Center romped on the inflatables, ate delicious food and received gifts at the holiday party.

Both the Young Lawyer Divisions host the parties to provide a fun-filled holiday escape for disadvantaged children that come from unsafe home environments. Both St. Nick's and the Sunshine Group Home provide safe havens for children who have been abused, neglected or abandoned.
