Birmingham Bar Association Bulletin Fall 2015

Birmingham Bar Foundation Lawyers Rock the Birmingham Bar! The 2nd Annual Rock the Bar raised more than $40,000 to benefit the Birmingham Bar Foundation—besting last year’s net proceeds by 22 percent. More than 200 people enjoyed the event which was held at Sidebar in the Lakeview district. Rock the Bar featured live music by Teenage Daddy and great cuisine by Chef Michael Glenn. The silent auction included items donated by Full Moon BBQ, Santa Fe Day Spa, and Etc. in Mountain Brook as well as Birmingham attorneys Christina Graham and Linda Cole. The Party Like A Rock Star raffle for the grand prize of a wheelbarrow filled with all the amenities needed to stock a private bar, valued at $1,500, was won by Lanier Brown. With the help of Swell Fundraising, the Foundation used innovative software for online donations, ticket and raffle sales. BBA Sections and individuals competed to climb the fundraising leaderboards, which were streaming live throughout the event keeping a tally of the top fundraising section and individual. The Solo/Small Firms Section walked away with the Top Section Fundraiser title by raising $5,650! For their hard work, the Foundation will sponsor a section mixer in September. Attorney Leslie Barineau was the Top Fundraiser, and for her hard work, she received the new Apple Watch. This year’s Rock the Bar committee members were Elizabeth McElroy, Chair; Andrew Salser, Co-chair; John Bolus; Linda Cole; William “Buddy” Cox; Anne Lamkin Durward; Michael D. Ermert; Andrew Nix; J. Houston Smith, III; and Virginia Underwood.
