Scrubs vs. Suits: GBA Lawyers take on Local Doctors in a Charity Basketball Event

On Sunday, February 26th, the GBA and the Young Lawyers Section took on local doctors from Greensboro in the Scrubs vs. Suits basketball game challenge.  The goal of the event was to raise $5,000 for a new play therapy room for the Mustard Seed, a new clinic serving uninsured and underinsured patients in East Greensboro.  Together, both teams exceeded their goal and raised over $15,000.

The doctors were coached by former NBA player, Gene Banks. Mike Hogewood announced the game and Chief Justice Frye provided the honorary tip-off.  Both teams played their hearts out but ultimately the doctors were victorious. Luckily for the Suits, there’s always next year.

The YLS would like to thank the GBA for their support and co-sponsorship in this event. We would also like to thank each and every member of the Suits team (listed below), which consisted of local practitioners, GBA board members, a judge, Elon law students, and YLS members. It was a great opportunity to interact with members from across the profession and we are truly grateful to all of the players who gave of their time to support this great event. Finally, we would like to thank Adam Kerr, our head coach, for all of his hard work in organizing our practices and coaching us through the game, as well as our assistant coaches, Gwen Lewis and Mark Gaylord.
