Food Frenzy beats online goal by $4,600…and counting
5:24 pm, May 3rd, 2013
A late push by many firms jockeying for position pushed the Legal Food Frenzy way past its goal of $55,000 in online donations on Friday.
As of 5:15 p.m., the Georgia legal community had raised $59,656.20 for the state’s food banks, which can stretch those funds into nearly $420,000 worth of food for hungry people.
Final results in the competition among legal groups are not available yet, as actual food and cash donations will be collected next week. And the online results could change as the final hours of the contest tick by, given how close the top competitors are.
For now, however, Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton has regained its lead, with $6,555 in online donations. It eclipsed Georgia Tech’s legal department, which has $6,021. King & Spalding holds a narrow lead on Alston & Bird for third place, with $5,575 over A&B’s $5,530.
The rest of the four-digit field looks like this:
DeKalb County Solicitor-General: $4,373.45
Georgia Department of Law: $3,815
Southern Company/Georgia Power legal department: $2,900
Hunton & Williams: $2,540
Atlanta Legal Aid Society: $1,470
Coca-Cola Co. legal department: $1,375
Kutak Rock: $1,285
Siemon Law Firm: $1,220
Rogers & Hardin: $1,170
Daily Report: $1,152.
