The Association for Women Attorneys is hosting the 5th Annual New Orleans Food from the Bar Campaign. In 2015, we raised nearly $31,000 to support Second Harvest during the challenging summer months, and we hope to raise even more this year. This campaign is part of a food drive by legal communities across the country, in which participants raise funds for and donate food to local food banks. Food from the Bar helps Second Harvest replenish food bank supplies in anticipation of higher demand during summer months when demand is high and inventory is low.

How it works

We challenge your firm to sponsor the event and to participate in a competitive food and fundraising drive intended to inspire a little healthy competition between our law firms and to support the Food from the Bar campaign.

The campaign will begin with a kick-off party on Thursday, July 14, 2016, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Join us for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at Café Adelaide (free valet parking). $30/person. Click here to purchase tickets. 

During the campaign, which begins on Monday, July 18, 2016 and ends on Friday, July 29, 2016, your firm will be awarded points for firm sponsorships, individual attorney and staff financial donations, and food donations to Second Harvest Food Bank. Real time donations can be made to Second Harvest directly through the participating firm’s individual Food from the Bar website that will be set up by Second Harvest, or can be made by cash, check and/or food donations that will be picked up during the week of July 29th. Online raffles of great prizes will occur during the drive, and your participation in the raffles will be counted towards your firm’s points. Click here for more information about the raffle and to purchase raffle tickets! The firms with the highest score overall and per capita at the end of the drive will each win a snoball party at their office!
