Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers to Donate $15,000 to Local Non-Profits Nominated by Hampton Roads Residents

NORFOLK, VA —April 8, 2024: $15,000 is on the line for three Hampton Roads non-profits. The Car Crash Experts at Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers announced the start of their annual Vote for a Cause contest this week, inviting local residents to determine the winners. The local non-profit, sports team, or faith-based organization that earns the most votes from the community will win the top prize of $10,000 from the Norfolk-based personal injury law firm this Spring. Second and third places will win $3,000 and $2,000, respectively.

Vote For a Cause Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers Cares Help Your Favorite Organization Win a $10,000 Donation

“Our attorneys and staff look forward to this community-led contest every year,” says Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers partner Griffin O’Hanlon. “To see the impact these organizations make throughout Hampton Roads is really amazing, and we’re proud to support their efforts by making significant donations each year.”

Last May, Griffin presented $15,000 in checks to the firm’s 2023 Vote for a Cause winners—Reck League, The Mount Church, and Stop the Violence 757. Over 12,500 residents nominated and voted for their favorite organizations to win in 2023. Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers expects an even greater turnout this year as news of the contest spreads and organizations galvanize more support from their followers.

The rules for this year’s contest are simple: Hampton Roads residents may nominate any locally based non-profit, sports team, or faith-based organization to win. Nominated organizations have from April 2 to May 14 to rack up as many votes as possible via Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers’ website. One vote per Hampton Roads resident is allowed. The winners will be announced on May 17 via Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers’ Facebook page.

Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers encourages all nominated organizations to galvanize support via their websites, social media pages, newsletters, and more.

As for the prize money? Organizations may use the funds at their discretion. Last year, Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyer’s $10,000 donation to first place winner Reck League funded its annual summer football skills and leadership training camp for Norfolk youth. The Mount used its $3,000 donation to help fund the installation of an indoor playground on its Chesapeake campus.

Vote for a Cause is one of several initiatives that Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers has launched under Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers Cares to thank Hampton Roads for its continuous support. Recently, the personal injury law firm donated $2,750 in grocery gift cards to E. Palmer Supermarket in the Berkley neighborhood of Norfolk at the annual Berkley Grocery Giveaway. In addition to Vote for a Cause this spring and regular donations throughout the year, The Car Crash Experts also plan to donate $15,000 to three local schools this fall through its annual Vote for a School contest.
