Southern California CPA firm Haskell & White LLP was recognized by Kids Konnected at its annual gala recently for years of support for the nonprofit, which connects youths and families that have been afflicted by cancer in order to build a support structure through shared experiences.
“Haskell & White’s involvement with Kids Konnected began when an employee lost a spouse to cancer. Kids Konnected served as an invaluable resource for the children by giving them a safe space to discuss what was going on in their lives,” said Wayne Pinnell, managing partner of Haskell & White. “The firm is happy to support an organization that gives back to kids when they need it the most.”
One of the largest independent CPA firms in the region, Haskell & White has a long and proud tradition of giving back to the community. The firm had previously been named a winner of the Association for Corporate Growth’s Corporate Responsibility award and the National Philanthropy Day Orange County award, and individual firm members have been recognized for their philanthropic endeavors on numerous occasions, including Pinnell who was named a “Dream Maker” by the Boys & Girls Club of Central Orange Coast and a “Pink Tie Guy” by Susan G. Komen Orange County.
“Kids Konnected is very appreciative of Haskell & White’s long-term commitment,” said Ryan Healy, outreach manager of Kids Konnected. ”Their efforts helped us in our mission to provide families with support services that include support groups, summer camps and family events.”
The Ambassador to the Children award was presented at the Kids Konnected annual gala on Oct. 21 at the Plaza de Magdalena in San Juan Capistrano, Calif.
