Lathrop Gage Hosts Santa Snow Ball for LAKC


Lathrop Gage attorneys Mara Cohara and Cameron Garrison have spearheaded the firm's leadership of the Lawyers Association of Kansas City - Young Lawyers Section's "Santa Snow Ball." The event will take place Tuesday, December 16, at the firm's Kansas City office, as volunteer lawyers from throughout the Kansas City metro area will provide food and Christmas gifts for 250 children from local homeless shelters.

To raise funds for this annual outreach program within the law firm of Lathrop Gage, the firm scheduled a "Jeans Day" for November 26, where firm attorneys and employees will donate a minimum of $5 each to the cause in exchange for a day wearing blue jeans in the firm's Kansas City office. The December 16 event will feature a holiday reception for the children, where the volunteering attorneys will serve the children and their parents dinner. The children will also enjoy games and activities like cookie decorating, face painting and a present exchange.

LAKC-YLS focuses its outreach in service of the public interest, service of young lawyers, and in young lawyers engaging in community involvement. The section is chaired by Ms. Cohara. For more information, please contact Cameron Garrison at (816) 460-5566.
