To the Editor:

On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations and thanks to the officers and members of the Augusta Bar Association on the success of its Mulherin Plaid Golf Tournament and Silent Auction, which raised $21,647 to benefit When Help Can’t Wait, a nonprofit organization that assists nursing home residents.

Augusta Bar President Sam Nicholson and his fellow members are to be commended for spearheading a fundraiser that will have a positive impact on thousands of area residents who receive assistance from When Help Can’t Wait. 

Georgia’s local and voluntary bar associations fulfill an important responsibility in service to the legal profession and their local communities. Successful projects like this further mission of Georgia lawyers to serve the public and the justice system.
