The law firm of Westmoreland, Patterson, Moseley & Hinson Legal participated in the 9th annual Georgia Legal Food Frenzy and raised just over $1K—superseding our original goal of $500 by a long shot! Attorney Philip Potter was in charge of handling our firm’s participation in this exciting event.
The Georgia Legal Food Frenzy was created by the attorney general, the Georgia Food Bank Association and the State Bar to raise money for local food banks. There is a growing need for children in Georgia to have access to food. During the school year, school-aged kids are eligible for free or reduced lunches, but sadly they can risk going hungry during the summer months. The Georgia Legal Food Frenzy fills in that gap by making sure all the Georgia food banks are stocked and ready to feed these kids and their families.
The Legal Food Frenzy is a 2-week fundraising competition open to anyone in the Georgia legal community. This year, 225 local teams of lawyers and firms participated in the competition. According to the Food Frenzy website, the total raised by all teams was over $697,000, which shattered last year’s record of just over $419K.
When it came down to official rankings, our firm finished in 6th place—and we raised 205 percent of our goal! Our firm had an original goal to raise $500, but thanks to our generous donors we raised twice that much. We are so thankful for the outpouring of support from our Macon community and look forward to setting our sights even higher next year.
