On January 24, 2020, Hartley Law Group, PLLC was proud to sponsor the Bob Huggins Fish Fry. All proceeds from the fundraiser went to the Norma Mae Huggins Endowment Fund, which supports clinical cancer research in West Virginia, and the Remember the Miners scholarship fund, which helps educate mining engineers and spread awareness of the risks associated with mining.
Many people in West Virginia have lost loved ones to cancer and mining accidents, such as the Upper Big Branch Mine disaster of 2010. The Fish Fry allows the community to come together, honor and remember friends and family members who have passed; and raise money to prevent future losses.
The evening was a smashing success and featured a silent auction, live music, a signature bourbon tasting, beer-battered fish, and ice-cold drinks. Basketball legend, Rod Thorn, made a special guest appearance and helped celebrate the legacy of West Virginia coal miners. WVU Men’s Basketball Coach Bob Huggins encouraged everyone to have fun in memory of his mother, Norma May Huggins, who lost her fight to colon cancer in 2003.
Our firm is delighted to have sponsored this event. To learn more about our work in the community and the ways we help American workers, please visit us online.
