Prominent Bethesda attorney Robby Brewer, who has represented the Lerner family through the White Flint Mall redevelopment process, will be honored at an event from a local housing nonprofit set for the Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club.
Kensington-based Rebuilding Together, which repairs and modifies homes for low-income families, will honor Brewer at its 2013 Honors Reception on April 3. Brewer, a land-use attorney at Bethesda-based Lerch, Early & Brewer for more than 35 years, is on Rebuilding Together’s Corporate Advisory Council and has been involved with a number of Bethesda community, nonprofit and business organizations over the years.
The Chevy Chase resident last year received the Randy Schools Outstanding Service Award from the Bethesda Big Train. Brewer served as counsel for the Bethesda Community Baseball Club from its incorporation in 1998 to its dissolution last year. BCC Baseball took over the Big Train.
The Rebuilding Together honor is for his community service with the organization and other nonprofits in the area.
“Robby Brewer is a rare gem for any nonprofit leader. He is someone willing to listen intently as a sounding board, mobilize his network for your benefit, and personally commit to work he feels important while also encouraging those in his sphere of influence to get involved, too,” said Rebuilding Together executive director Susan Hawfield. “We have been so fortunate to have Robby champion Rebuilding Together Montgomery County for nearly a decade, and his guidance has allowed us to grow as an organization and grow financially.”
Brewer’s firm has become the most prominent working in land-use and development issues in the area.
The event is open to the public and will benefit Rebuilding Together, which in its 23-year history has made repairs on more than 1,800 homes at a value of more than $16 million to help families remain living independently.
