Community Connection

We are grateful for the strong relationships we’ve built with our clients as well as the communities in which we serve them. Our lawyers proudly work hard on behalf of their clients — and just as hard in support of important causes.

Bunkers in Baghdad

Bunkers in Baghdad, Inc. is a non-profit charity founded and managed by Goldberg Segalla partner Joseph M. Hanna. This unique organization helps our troops by collecting and sending new and used golf balls, clubs, and equipment to U.S. troops in more than 60 countries around the world. Bunkers also supplies golf equipment to wounded warriors programs around the country to aid in the rehabilitation of our injured veterans. The charity has even established a very rewarding “Bunkers Buddies” program for schoolchildren across the country, with children packing and shipping boxes filled with balls, cards and letters they write to the soldiers. Since its inception in 2008, Bunkers has collected and shipped out more than 8 million golf balls and more than 600,000 golf clubs, with more arriving daily.
