This charity benefit raised over $277,000 last year and received rave reviews in the press. And 100% of the money received was used to purchase essential clothing items for homeless men, women and children! More information about this year’s event, as well as from prior years (including pics), may be found by checking out our YouTube channel and also right here. As we always say, make sure to vote early and vote often!
Tickets are $10 at the door, or please contact Nancy Johnson for inquiries at firstname.lastname@example.org
DC’s Homeless are waiting for clothing. Gifts for the Homeless will answer that call, but only with your support. Foley & Lardner LLP is here to help with its most excellent band “Speak No Evil” — VOTE/DONATE at www.crowdrise.com/speaksnoevil (don’t forget the extra “s” — that’s what makes them sassy!). Get a taste of the band from checking out a past year’s performance on you tube (the band was formerly known as Jazz Ipsa Loquitur).
Will they be able to stay at the top this year? is the big question that the other 17 bands and Banding Together fans want to know. The Unnamed Party’s members come from triple threat Paul Hastings, Hunton & Williams, and Arent Fox. The Unnamed Party was crowned and bestowed the trophy for the top band of the year at our 2013 charity benefit concert. Head over to their crowdrise page before the show to aid their quest to remain the best of the best and come rock out with them at the big show on Thursday, June 26th at the Black Cat.
Want to get a taste of what you might hear at this year’s show — check them out on youtube!
Step right up ladies and gentleman, and enjoy the show of One for the Governor, one of the 18 fabulous bands that you will find at Banding Together: Battle of the Law Firm Bands, a charity concert to benefit GFTH at the Black Cat on Thursday, June 26th. One for the Governor returns after a three-year hiatus from Banding Together, and is ready to bring back its infamous eclectic love song acoustic quartet style.
The band’s members come from big law’s Crowell & Morning, Telecommunication Law Professionals, and a GFTH Board member thrown in for good measure (hint: he’s not wearing a button down shirt and he is in the plant in the band pic). Help the band to advance far in the competition by voting in advance on its Crowdrise page and then come cheer them on at the show!
