To the Editor:
On behalf of the Young Lawyers Division (YLD) of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to congratulate the judges of the Augusta Judicial Circuit for winning the Judicial Division in the recently completed eighth annual Georgia Legal Food Frenzy.
The food and money raised by the Augusta judges on behalf of the Golden Harvest Food Bank contributed to the record-breaking total of 1.7 million meals raised by the legal community across the state. A total of 193 legal organizations, representing more than 13,000 members, participated in this year’s Legal Food Frenzy. We also congratulate Fulcher Hagler LLP in Augusta, total points runner-up in the Golden Harvest Food Bank region, and Durham Law Firm P.C. in Evans, per capita runner-up in the region, for their success as well.
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 its regional food banks. We have now raised the equivalent of 8.9 million meals in eight 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.
Rizza P. O’Connor
President, Young Lawyers Division
State Bar of Georgia
