Results of Food from the Bar Drive 2016
In April, the Contra Costa County Bar Association held its 25th annual Food From The Bar fundraiser for the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano.
It started with the 21st annual Comedy Night kick-off, a sold-out event, that drew 172 attorneys and guests who enjoyed BBQ and belly laughs at Back Forty Texas BBQ in Pleasant Hill. This year’s show featured Will Durst and Larry “Bubbles” Brown. More than 20 generous sponsors donated to support the event.
That was followed by a two-week fundraising blitz by 36 large and small law offices in the county, whose 700+ employees helped raise more than $41,000 and 200 pounds of food.
Over the years, the Bar Association has collected more than $1.25 million and 56 tons of food for the Food Bank. A special thank you to our sponsors; we could not have done this without your support!
