Women in eDiscovery Exceeds Fundraising Goal for Susan G. Komen for the Cure

Women in eDiscovery, a non-profit organization committed to providing information and education as a public service to the legal community, has exceeded its fundraising goal for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The organization raised more than $52,000 across six chapters. Some chapters participated in the Race for the Cure, and others participated in the Breast Cancer 3-Day, 60-mile walk. All proceeds benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure and National Philanthropic Trust, which funds important breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment.
 
Women in eDiscovery co-founders established a goal of raising $30,000 collectively and walking in at least five of the cities. The organization surpassed this goal by raising $52,000 across several chapters, including New York, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Boston, San Francisco, Dallas, and Minneapolis.
 
Women in eDiscovery was formed to bring together businesswomen interested in technology in the legal industry and has grown to more than 3,000 women with 22 local chapters throughout the United States and more chapters forming overseas. Among the women who have joined the organization are attorneys from law firms and corporations, litigation support professionals, paralegals, legal IT staff, consultants, and vendors.
