Falcon Capital Partners Joins Support Center for Child Advocates

Falcon Capital Partners Joins Support Center for Child Advocates to ‘Go Green on the Greens’ at the 7th Annual Child Advocates Golf Classic

Philadelphia, PA — On Monday, October 1, 2012, Falcon Capital Partners, a leading transaction advisory firm offering merger & acquisition advisory, strategic advisory, and capital financing services to middle- and lower middle-market companies, will join the Support Center for Child Advocate (Child Advocates) as a sponsor at the agency’s 7th Annual Golf Classic. The event will be held at Huntingdon Valley Country Club, one of the top five golf courses in Pennsylvania.

All proceeds from the event will support Child Advocates Project for Medically Needy Children. The Project teams staff social workers with specially trained volunteer lawyers to secure necessary medical treatment, special education, rehabilitation services, and whenever possible permanent nurturing homes for cases involving children with serious and/or chronic medical needs. “Our medically needy cases are more complex, remain open longer, and require more agency resources than typical cases,” says Frank Cervone, Child Advocates Executive Director and a nationally recognized child abuse legal expert. “The Philadelphia corporate and legal communities have been critical in generating funds, awareness and changing the story for many of our areas most vulnerable children.”

Event partner, Cleantech Alliance Mid-Atlantic (CAMA) will present an exciting pre-golf morning program, Digging Deep into Marcellus Shale, which will provide an in-depth exploration of the legal, economic and environmental issues surrounding Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling. The program will feature an engaging and interactive panel including Scott Perry, Deputy Secretary of the Office of Oil and Gas Management, Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection; Zach Needles of The Legal Intelligencer; Marc Gold of Manko, Gold, Katcher & Fox, LLP, Mark Gaeto of Falcon Capital Partners, LLP, Harry Weiss of Ballard Spahr LLP and Kevin Roberts, Penn Virginia Resource Partners. Additional speakers to be determined.
