McGlinchey Stafford Raises Top Sum for Food & Funds Challenge for Fourth Consecutive YearRead Time: 1 min
For the fourth consecutive year, McGlinchey Stafford emerged victorious in the Food from the Bar Campaign, an annual fundraiser and food drive for the Second Harvest Food Bank organized by the New Orleans chapter of the Association for Women Attorneys (AWA). Hillary Barnett Lambert, an attorney in McGlinchey Stafford’s New Orleans office, serves as President of AWA. Camille Bryant, also resident in the firm’s New Orleans office, is a member of the AWA’s board.
McGlinchey Stafford raised $14,965.46 to benefit Second Harvest. Overall, the Food & Funds Challenge raised $40,000.46 and 179 pounds of food from 26 competing New Orleans-area law firms.
McGlinchey Stafford continued to put its own spin on the fundraising activities for Second Harvest, for the fourth consecutive year hosting a friendly in-office competition dubbed the Anti-Hunger Games. The firm’s New Orleans office was divided into four teams, each comprised of attorneys, legal staff, and administrators, which competed to see who could raise the most food and money for the cause.
For the first time, McGlinchey Stafford’s fundraising efforts also included a Sushi Smackdown sushi-making competition on July 27 between McGlinchey Stafford and IBERIABANK at Tsunami Sushi New Orleans. With the gracious consent by both IBERIABANK and Tsunami Sushi New Orleans, all proceeds from the Sushi Smackdown benefited Second Harvest through AWA’s Food & Funds Challenge.
McGlinchey Stafford’s success in the Food & Funds Challenge was driven by the enthusiasm and participation of every person in the firm’s New Orleans office. This competition and McGlinchey Stafford’s success are indicative of the firm’s ongoing commitment to the local communities in which it works through pro bono legal representation, donations, and volunteerism.
