Harrison Pensa is cancelling its annual Oyster Party for 2020 due to concerns about COVID-19 and large gatherings. 

Harrison Pensa will redirect funds from the event to make a contribution to the Youth Opportunities Unlimited (YOU) Joan’s Place New Addition campaign. Joan’s Place will provide housing for youth, young mothers and moms-to-be.

“The health of our community, clients and employees is our priority. Out of an abundance of caution, we felt this was a prudent step to take,” explains Adam Jean, Chief Operating Officer of the London law firm. “While it is disheartening to cancel an event that so many look forward to attending, we want to turn this into an opportunity to make a positive impact in our community. I am pleased to report that the firm will redirect funds from the event in order to do just that.”

“Knowing this support is going to YOU as a way to help individuals during a truly vulnerable time in their lives is something we are very proud to contribute to.”
