Miami, FL, January 26, 2006 — The law firm of Buchanan Ingersoll PC recently made a $12,000 donation to the Greater Miami and Keys Chapter of the American Red Cross. The donation was in lieu of purchasing holiday cards and gifts for its clients.

"Our South Florida employees and clients were deeply affected by the devastating hurricanes of 2005," said CEO Thomas VanKirk. "We wanted to recognize the work of the American Cross, which was instrumental in aiding the hurricane victims."

The 2005 hurricane season included a record-setting 26 named storms, with four major hurricanes making landfall in the United States, causing billions of dollars in damage.
