Bone McAllester Norton attorney Stephen Zralek co-chaired the Sexual Assault Center’s inaugural 1-in-6 Breakfast, held on April 25, 2019 at Loews Vanderbilt Hotel to raise awareness and financial support for the 41-year old non-profit. Over 300 guests attended, helping raise over $100,000 in contributions. According to the Sexual Assault Center (SAC), one in six boys will be sexually assaulted before their 18th birthday. SAC's mission is to provide healing for children, adults and families affected by sexual assault and to end sexual violence through counseling, education and advocacy. The event began with welcome remarks from Nashville Mayor David Briley, who used the opportunity to announce he is including $100,000 in direct appropriations funding for the SAC when he submits his budget to the Metro Council for the new fiscal year. NBA All-Star and childhood sexual assault survivor, Kenny Anderson, who now serves as the head basketball coach for the firm’s client Fisk University, delivered the keynote address. David Plazas, Opinion Editor at The Tennessean, served as the master of ceremonies. Father Ryan High School's award-winning drumline kicked off the event.
Bone McAllester Norton was honored to serve as one of the sponsors for the breakfast, and the host committee included the firm’s Founder and Chairman Charles W. Bone, President and CEO Charles Robert Bone and attorneys Sam Jackson, Andrea Perry and Ed Yarbrough, as well as many of the firm's clients and friends.
