WEST PALM BEACH, FL—GOLDLAW is proud to announce that Founder & CEO Craig Goldenfarb, Esq. has been appointed to the Board of Directors for Red Sneakers for Oakley (RSFO), a 501(c)3 nonprofit established in 2016. RSFO was created by Merrill and Robert Debbs after their 11-year-old son Oakley tragically passed away due to an anaphylactic reaction caused by a food allergy.
GOLDLAW was a key local presence at RSFO’s International Red Sneakers Day food allergy awareness and education event which took place on May 20, 2023, in Downtown West Palm Beach. Inspired to support the organization and its crusade to educate the public about food allergies because he suffers from a tree nut allergy like Oakley, Goldenfarb established an immediate connection with the Debbs family.
With its name taken from Oakley’s affinity for red athletic shoes, RSFO is grounded in its dedication to provide education that is needed between allergists, hospitals, first responders, parents, schools and the general public. The foundation has dedicated its resources to education and advocacy for food allergy awareness by creating and supporting “Red Sneakers Days.” Participants wear their red sneakers – or anything red – to raise awareness of the dangers of food allergies.
