GBA Fundraiser Benefiting Legal Aid of North Carolina
On April 16th, the Greensboro Bar Association held a successful fundraiser benefiting our local office of Legal Aid of North Carolina in the SciQuarium of the Greensboro Science Center. The event was organized by Chelsea Anderson, Kim Gatling, and Ryan Luft. The event was catered by Catering by Bakatsias, and beer and wine was provided by Preyer Brewing Company, Gibbs Hundred Brewing Company, and Rioja! A Wine Bar. There were 80 people in attendance, which included members of the GBA, as well as members of the community that sponsored the event, along with their friends and family.
Preston Nelson won the Proximity Hotel raffle give-away, and Doris Bray won the Durham Hotel raffle give-away. Ed Sharp, Afi Johnson-Parris, and Kelly Burke won the Guess the Wine contest, with prizes generously donated by Medaloni Cellars.
The event was sponsored by Brooks Pierce and Ward Black Law at the Platinum Level; Smith Moore Leatherwood and Lawyers Mutual at the Gold Level, Johnson Peddrick & McDonald at the Silver Level; Benson Brown & Faucher, Clifford Division of Clifford Clendenin & O’Hale, Cunningham & Company Mortgage Brokers, Elon University School of Law, ITG Brands, Jill Wilson and Marc Isaacson, Nexsen Pruet, LLC, and Senn Dunn Insurance at the Bronze Level.
Thanks to the hard work of the committee, ticket sales, sponsorships, several donations, and two generous gifts, one of $2,500 and one of $5,000, the GBA was able to present Janet McAuley-Blue of our local Greensboro Legal Aid office with a check for $18,391.05. Thank you to those that donated time, money, and purchased tickets to the event – we couldn’t have done it without you.
