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

Do you love good music in the summer?  Would you like to support a great local cause in an easy, quick way?  Do you want to donate to an all-volunteer non-profit with heart that helps clothe local people experiencing homelessness with maximum use of your donations?

Lawyers and other legal eagles in the DC metro legal community will take off their ties and suit jackets to be rock stars for one night — Thursday, June 26, 2014 — all in the good spirit of raising funds to enable Gifts for the Homeless to purchase and distribute bulk clothing at low wholesale prices to area homeless shelters and others in tremendous need.

Get a head start now and vote for your favorite band by checking out our CROWDRISE VOTING page with info on all of the participating bands representing a number of law firms and other law-related businesses and organizations in the DC metro area.  (Online voting for your favorite band(s) is open until 11:15 pm East Coast Time on Thursday, June 26th) 

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
