The Cooley LLP law firm pulls out all the stops when it comes to The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB)’s annual Legal Food Frenzy fundraising competition. The firm has won an unprecedented three years in a row.
This year, Cooley took home the crown by raising more than $33,000 for GBFB, enough money to provide nearly 100,000 healthy meals to families struggling with hunger across Eastern Massachusetts.
“The people here really feel passionate about Legal Food Frenzy,” said Lyle Woodworth, office administrator for Cooley. “It is far and away the biggest fundraising event we participate in.”
Boston-area law firms compete in Legal Food Frenzy over a 10-day period every March. Twenty law firms participated in 2017, the eighth year of the event.
“Cooley employees’ competitive spirt and compassion have been an unbeatable combination for the last three years and have translated into generous and steadfast support for those we serve and for which we are deeply grateful,” said Catherine D’Amato, GBFB president and CEO.
Since 2010, Cooley has donated over $121,000 to GBFB.
