Despite the rain, the team accomplished its goal of helping raise funds to ensure equal access to collegiate education and we thank everyone on our team who braved the weather to be involved in this worthy cause. Members of the Firm who participated in the event included: David Cross, Deborah Crossley, Jelani Karamoko, Samuel McCargo, Michelle Plesky, Heather Savitskie, Ronda Tate Truvillion and Kim Wade.
