Over the past few years, Greenberg Glusker (California - U.S.A.) has held creative and innovative campaigns to raise funds for the Food Bank. It has taken the shape of the Pie a Partner challenge, the Attorney Karaoke challenge, and Lip Sync Battles. This year, we held an in-person event in our offices—Casino Night!
The Casino Night saw us turning our front reception into a casino cashier, our multi-purpose room into a casino with table games, and the conference rooms into a dining room and bar. All money spent buying chips, drinks, or raffle tickets, was donated to Food from the Bar–a friendly competition including legal firms, law schools and legal services organizations, to see who can raise the most funds, acquire the most food, and work the most volunteer hours for the Food Bank in an effort to feed the children of Los Angeles County who may go hungry in the summer months.
We raised $9,172, placing us 11th among the 54 law firms participating. We also were awarded the Creativity Award by the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to recognize our creative approach to driving participation to raise funds.
