Cuming & Gillespie LLP was a proud sponsor of Calgary Legal Guidance’s 2019 Advice-a-Thon, which took place on September 28th at Calgary City Hall. This annual fundraising event enables volunteer lawyers and staff to provide up to thirty minutes of free legal help to the general public for an entire day. Participating lawyers also collect fundraising pledges for their time in support of the CLG and the invaluable services they provide to disadvantaged Calgarians.
This year’s event was a great success. 51 lawyers and articling students volunteered, as well as 21 administrative staff, and together they were able to provide 84 individuals with free legal help. In total, volunteers donated nearly 200 hours of their time towards this wonderful cause.
