ATLANTA, G.A. – January 23, 2018 – To kick off the holiday season, on Friday, December 1, 2017, Cherokee Funding held its fourth annual holiday party at the National Center for Civil and Human Rights.
The National Center for Civil and Human Rights, which serves as a museum dedicated to the achievements of the civil rights movement in the United States as well as the worldwide human rights movement, opened in 2014 and has been the location for Cherokee Funding’s holiday party since opening.
“Not only is it a spectacular venue, but the Center for Civil and Human Rights has a special place in my and Suzi’s hearts, and serves as a great reminder to our team and guests of what we, and Cherokee Funding, stand for,” said Reid Zeising, founder and CEO of Cherokee Funding, LLC, a full-service direct funding company headquartered in Atlanta.
There were over 500 people in attendance, including Ronnie Mabra, former Georgia State Representative; Pamela Mullis, member of the Southern Trial Lawyers Association (STLA) and Board Member of the South Carolina Association for Justice (SCAJ); Beth Burke, STLA member; Justin Tyler Bamberg, South Carolina State Representative; and many other award-winning attorneys and talented professionals.
“The night is really intended to kick off the holidays in Atlanta,” said Zeising. “We try to take the first opportunity of the season to say thank you to those who are so important to us and our community. But more than th23at, we celebrate in a place that is meaningful to us and our clients.”
Cherokee Funding provides funds and necessary medical treatments for plaintiffs who are in the middle of claims but who do not have the personal means or access to medical care to continue waiting out a fair settlement.
“We like to think of ourselves as defenders of the Seventh Amendment, or the right to a trial by jury, which is one of the reasons why the Center for Civil and Human Rights is absolutely the perfect space for us,” said Zeising.
“The Center is an inspiring place to be, in general, and I’m honored to be able to host our business partners, friends and employees there every year,” said Zeising. “It represents all of the oppressed people here and around the world, and what they’ve fought for and what their experiences have been, and why we need to continue to fight – no matter what form that takes. The museum is a huge asset, and as a city, we’re privileged to get to have it here in Atlanta.”
In addition to benefitting the Center for Civil and Human Rights, Cherokee Funding also contributes to the Atlanta Mission through their annual coat drive and ask that all attendees bring a coat to give to the cause.
