To the Editor:
On behalf of the Young Lawyers Division (YLD) of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to congratulate the attorneys and staff of Coleman Talley LLP in Valdosta for their outstanding success as the winner of the inaugural Bar President's Cup in the sixth annual Georgia Legal Food Frenzy competition.
Coleman Talley collected 141,000 pounds of food, the highest total ever for one firm and the most among the 215 legal organizations that participated in this year's Legal Food Frenzy, which took place April 17-28. Their efforts contributed to the record-breaking total of 1.34 million pounds raised by the legal community across the state.
Along with Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr, the Georgia YLD is honored to co-sponsor this project to assist the Georgia Food Bank Association and the Food Banks across the state. We have now raised a total of 6.34 million pounds of food in six years.
Thanks again to each attorney and legal professional who joined us for this important cause. We are proud to help lead an effort that has such a significant impact on communities across Georgia.
Jennifer C. Mock
President, Young Lawyers Division
