The 33rd annual Hoops for Hope tournament attracted 681 colleagues, clients and friends of the firm to support the 2021 Anders Charity of Choice, The Child Center. Heather Kemper of The Child Center joined Anders for a celebration lunch where a check for $11,500 was presented. “With the pandemic especially, it’s amazing the amount of support people give when they have one common mission,” said Kemper.
