Working with Dedicated People in the Medical Profession
Skip Pita and Shannon Del Prado started Project Peru with the direct participation and support of the Coral Gables Congregational Church. Project Peru is a Miami-based volunteer organization that provides free surgical services to the indigenous of Peru. Since 2008, four Project Peru medical teams have travelled to Peru and have performed over 175 surgeries. The teams have been in the areas of: Gynecological Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery, and Plastic Surgery. In June 2012, the Plastic Surgery Team returned from its third trip to Peru. 66 surgeries were performed. These included cleft lip and pallate patients, burn victims, ear reconstructions, and other types of life-changing surgeries.
At Pita Weber & Del Prado, we advocate for justice. And for us, Project Peru fulfills many core principles. Among them, three are critically important to our firm. First, Project Peru provides health care in a remote part of the world where people would otherwise have none. Second, Project Peru destroys the notion that Miami lacks volunteerism. And finally, Project Peru improves the image of our country in the world community.
We are proud to be associated with the excellent doctors and nurses in Miami that are involved in Project Peru. The doctors include Dr. Anthony Cardella, Dr. Byron “Pat” Pazmino, Dr. Daniel Kalbac, Dr. Gabriel Salloum, Dr. Emery Salom, Dr. Miguel Cobas, Dr. Ferne Braveman, Dr. Balazs Horvath, Dr. Michael Diaz, and Dr. James Voglino. Project Peru’s volunteer nurses have come from Doctors’ Hospital, Baptist Hospital and Miami Children’s Hospital. Special Thanks to the to the supernurses: Amie Roberts and Yoly Roque.
United Christian Church of Christ Christmas service 2019
Pita Weber Del Prado partners Rosanna Molinari Weber, Shannon Del Prado, Skip Pita and Randy Weber along with their families had the privilege of attending The United Christian Church of Christ in West Coconut Grove pre-Christmas service with many of the congregation’s children. The children celebrated the true spirit of Christmas with song, dance, and prayer.
The UCCOC, which is housed in a historic structure built more than 100 years ago, has provided a place of worship and community for hundreds of West Coconut Grove children for over 5 decades.
In the last several years, PWD has worked closely with UCCOC Pastor, Dr. Marthenia “Tina” Dupree, in many fund raising and collection efforts. This year, the UCCOC children were asked to prepare a specific wish-list of Christmas gifts. From there, PWD partners, staff and families reached into our community to obtain gift donations. Especially important were BNI Chapters BNI 305 (Shannon Del Prado’s group) and BNI Accelerators (Rosanna Weber’s group), who not only made generous donations, but also helped to distribute the presents to each child.
PWD appreciates the generous donations and is grateful for the opportunity to celebrate Christmas with the UCCOC family. We very much admire the efforts of Dr. Dupree and her team at UCCOC. Dr. Dupree is a blessing to our City and PWD is proud to be COMMITTED TO OUR COMMUNITY.
Dear Pita Weber Del Prado Clients, Friends and Family –
The PWD Team wants to thank you for your loyalty, trust and confidence during the past year. We enjoyed spending Sunday Night, December 8, 2019, with many of you and your family at the PWD Annual Client Appreciation Event. Together we enjoyed a thrilling, “edge of your seat” Miami Heat game against the Chicago Bulls. As you know, the Heat won the game in overtime through hard work, dedication and a drive to win. Something that the Heat refers to as “Court Culture.”
At PWD, we are proud to say that we embrace and practice these same core values every day. We are committed to the relationship with our clients, our community and to excellence in the practice of law. We are proud to say that “Commitment is our Culture.”
Thank you for joining us for a great game and for being a part of the PWD Family! We posted some of the pictures from the event on the Pita Weber Del Prado Facebook and Instagram pages. We had a great time and hope that you did too!
Looking forward to the next event,
