SOUTH CAROLINA – The SC Bar Young Lawyers Division (YLD) raised $25,548 for food banks across the state as part of its virtual fundraising event, the SC Legal Feeding Frenzy.
“Thanks to the generosity and good-natured competitive spirit of SC Bar members, our partner food banks will be able to provide approximately 102,192 meals to South Carolinians in need,” said Paige Ornduff, president elect of the SC Bar YLD. “This is an especially critical time as food banks often see an increased need while school is out so we are truly appreciative of how our colleagues embraced this challenge to help others.”
The SC Legal Feeding Frenzy encouraged law firms and legal organizations to form teams and compete to see who could raise the most money via an online portal during the last week of May. The team with the highest average individual donation and the winner of the 2022 SCLFF President’s Cup was Clawson & Staubes, LLC, with an average individual donation of $143.12. The following teams earned the most points in their respective divisions:
· Small Firm: Hall Booth Smith, LLC
· Medium Firm: Robinson Gray Stepp & Laffitte
· Large Firm: McAngus Goudelock & Courie, LLC
· Public Interest/Government: 6th Circuit Solicitor's Office - Lancaster Office
· Teams earned points for each dollar donated and were also able to earn bonus points throughout the
competition. Donations also were received from number of individuals who were not associated with teams.
The year’s event marks the SC Bar YLD’s third Legal Feeding Frenzy and a continued partnership with Harvest
Hope Food Bank, Lowcountry Food Bank, Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina, Golden Harvest Food
Bank, and Feeding the Carolinas.
