Help us rock out at Gifts for the Homeless’ Banding Together: Battle of the Law Firm Bands 2015!  Sponsorships are now available at all levels — starting at $250 — to stamp the name of your firm, company, education institution, non-profit or organization as a proud supporter of our concert to benefit the DC metro homeless.  We are rocking out at the Black Cat in the heart of Washington, DC on the evening of Thursday, June 18, 2015.  Hundreds of people — many from law firms and other organizations as well as other professionals in the DC-metro community — attend the live benefit concert each year.  Last year, we received ample publicity and raised over $300,000, all of which was used for GFTH to purchase and distribute essential new winter clothing (socks, underwear, thermals, etc.) for people experiencing homelessness in the DC-metro area.  This event is a lot of fun and high energy.  The live music is outstanding.

Sponsorships include tickets and receive recognition on our print material, website and social media, in our thank you ad print advertisement, and to the crowd during the event.

Click on the 2015 BT Sponsorship Agreement Form for more details and information.  The form is quick and easy to complete and submit by email.  Please note that sponsorship applications and payments must be received by no later than Monday, June 1, 2015.

It’s that time again, and we at Gifts for the Homeless already have our eyes set on the summer’s biggest rock show, the 12th ANNIVERSARY Banding Together – Battle of the Law Firm Bands on Thursday, June 18, 2015.  The show will once again be presented in the heart of Washington, DC on two stages at the Black Cat.

We are excited to once again beat all expectations at Banding Together!  Use the link right here to support Gifts for the Homeless by “voting” with your donations for your favorite among our sixteen bands.  Every dollar you donate goes to purchase essential clothing and winter items for distribution through the shelter system in Metropolitan Washington and brings your band closer to the title of “Top Lawyer Band in DC.”  Vote Early and Often!

2015 better

Get ready to rock out to the sounds of DC’s hottest lawyer bands (really!) while benefiting the homeless!  Please mark your calendars and spread the word about GFTH’S 12th Anniversary Banding Together – Battle of the Law Firm Bands!

Bands will battle it out on two stages at the Black Cat in the heart of DC for the honor of being named the best of the best in ’15.  This is an ideal after work event to hang and schmooze with your firm colleagues, friends, and family while listening to some good tunes and raising money for Gifts for the Homeless. This is also a summer tradition for big firms to send their summer associates, lawyers and staff for a night out on the town.

If you or your firm want to get an early jump start, feel free to contact one of the following to get your rock on:

Dan Buchner (
Ann Battle (
Bart Epstein (
Laurie Glassman (

Every dollar is a vote for your band in the Battle, and goes to GFTH for purchasing and distributing essential new clothing to the DC area homeless!

The grand totals are in! Gifts for the Homeless smashed its old record, raising approximately $303,000 from Banding Together: Battle of the Law Firm Bands!!!!  Unnamed Party, represented by Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker Arent Fox LLP Hunton & Williams, was crowned the champion two years in a row, with Sutherland Comfort as the honorable runner-up.  Third place went to Attractive Nuisance represented by Steptoe & Johnson LLP.  We cannot thank enough our top three bands and the 13 other contenders, our emcees, our dedicated sponsors, our voters, and all who came out to rock and contributed support for our charity benefit concert.  Awesome music was played and it was a blast.  All of you made this event a tremendous success and we are so awed by your enthusiasm and generosity!!!!

Coverage of the event can be found on the press section of our website, where you can also listen to CBS radio’s audio story on the event, as well as heading over to our social media accessible on the right hand side of this page.  We encourage everyone to contribute photos, videos, and praiseworthy comments on those outlets.  If anyone would like to submit an article to be posted on our blog and social media, please contact Lisa at
