The Third Annual Patently Impossible Project

Wednesday, October 3, 2012 - 13:13


The Intellectual Property Committee of the Dade County Bar Association proudly invites you to participate in The Third Annual Patently Impossible Project to benefit the Legal Aid Society on Thursday, November 1, 2012 from 6pm to 8pm at the Miami Science Museum.

Now in its third year, The Patently Impossible Project is a charity race to assemble a patented invention. All participants will be provided various parts, tools and only the instructions in a patent registration - your job is to complete the assembly of the invention before your competition. Great prizes are up for grabs, and of course, bragging rights! If the competition intimidates you, come watch the action from the sidelines, cheer on your colleagues, and “bet” on your favorite contestant by purchasing raffle tickets for incredible door prizes. A reception with complimentary hors d’oeuvres, cocktails graciously provided by Grey Goose and Heineken, and amazing silent auction will follow.

The Legal Aid Society is the oldest legal services provider for the indigent in Miami-Dade County.  Established in 1939 and chartered in 1949, Legal Aid is the sole source of free civil legal services to all Miami-Dade’s indigent community; all foster children, regardless of age; victims of domestic violence and sexual assault seeking permanent injunction services; and families needing to open a guardianship case for an incapacitated child or parent. Unfortunately, devastating funding cuts have reduced Legal Aid’s staff and ability to serve the ever-growing legal needs of the indigent clients in Miami Dade. Legal Aid needs you now.
