FordHarrison Raises Funds in Support of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

Date   Sep 8, 2016

FordHarrison LLP, one of the country’s largest management-side labor and employment law firms, is pleased to announce that the firm’s employees raised $10,000 in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. St. Jude was selected as the firm’s spring/summer 2016 firm-wide charity. The firm set an initial goal of raising $7,000 for the organization, but with the overwhelming amount of participation from both attorneys and staff, the firm was able to exceed its goal. As an incentive for donations, employees were offered Friday jeans days from May through September.

“I appreciate everyone’s willingness to support St. Jude and this wonderful cause,” said Louis Britt, Regional Managing Partner of FordHarrison’s Memphis, Nashville, and Dallas offices, and chair of this year’s campaign. “FordHarrison and St. Jude have been longtime partners and we hope this contribution will make a difference in their fight to defeat childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.”
