Charleston YMCA Spirit of the Valley
The Spirit of the Valley serves as the annual fundraising campaign for the YMCA of Kanawha Valley (Charleston, WV). The membership and the community at large donate to the Spirit Campaign in honor of each year’s community service award recipient. The proceeds of this campaign benefit the YMCA Community Assistance Scholarship Fund, which assists individuals and families in becoming part of Y membership or programs no matter what their financial circumstances.
Laugh for Sight
Bailey & Glasser attorney James Kauffman serves as pro bono counsel for Laugh for Sight, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that raises awareness for degenerative eye diseases. Twice a year, Laugh for Sight hosts a comedy benefit that features an all-star slate of comedians. Past performers at Laugh for Sight include Jerry Seinfeld, Robert Kline, Sara Silverman, and Lewis Black. Through ticket sales and a silent auction, Laugh for Sight raises money for the Scheie Eye Institute at Penn State University, a leading researcher on the treatment of degenerative eye diseases, and other vision-related charities.
Charleston, WV East End Park
While serving on the Charleston City Council for 10 years, one of the major initiatives for Marc Weintraub was the revitalization of the Charleston East End. The community needed to develop enhanced greenspace and community resources. During Marc’s tenure, the city improved and expanded the Roosevelt Community Center and also designed, raised the money for, acquired land and built the East End Park. The land used by the East End Park was previously abandoned parcels with environmental concerns. Now the land is a beautiful park with amenities planned for folks of all ages.
A Passion for the Arts
Bailey & Glasser encourages and supports the fine arts in all its locations. The main office in Charleston WV is also home to a collection of works by artists with West Virginia connections.
