In May, the Contra Costa County Bar Association held its 24th annual Food From the Bar fundraiser for the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano.
Local lawyers and law firms went on a two-week fundraising blitz by 34 large and small law offices in the county, whose 700+ employees helped raise more than $51,350 and over 450 pounds of food.
Five winners in categories based on the size of the law firms have emerged.
The winners of the 2015 Food from the Bar Competition are:
- 1 – 5 Employees: Law Offices of Suzanne Boucher
- 6 – 10 Employees: Steele George Schofield & Ramos, LLP
- 11 – 20 Employees: Bramson, Plutzik, Mahler & Birkhaeuser, LLP
- 21 – 50 Employees: Bowles & Verna, LLP
- 51 and over Employees: Archer Norris
Congratulations to the winners and thank you for your generosity and dedication to the cause!
Over the years, the Bar Association has collected more than $1,150,000 and 55 tons of food for the Food Bank. The attorneys say they are already planning next year’s fundraiser and comedy show, as they work toward their second million in donations!
A special thank you to our sponsors; we could not have done this without your support!
