Local law firm recognized with Attorney General’s Cup in Legal Feeding Frenzy

The law firm of Rose Harrison Gilreath & Powers, P.C. of Kill Devil Hills was recently awarded the Attorney General’s Cup as the 2021 Legal Feeding Frenzy winner. The Attorney General’s Cup is given to the one law firm in North Carolina that had the highest average donation per employee in the firm during the competition.

This year, the Legal Feeding Frenzy raised $230,000, the equivalent of over 900,000 pounds of food, smashing the goal and previous record of $150,000.

“We are excited that we were able to contribute in such a meaningful way to such a great event,” said Dennis Rose, who has served on the board of the local Food Pantry.

In 2012, Peebles Harrison, a member of the firm, spearheaded the effort to establish this annual food drive after reading about a similar event in Virginia. The Legal Feeding Frenzy is conducted in coordination with Attorney General Josh Stein, the Young Lawyers Division of the N.C. Bar Association, the N.C. Bar Foundation and Feeding the Carolinas. North Carolina law students, law firms and other organizations take part in the annual fundraiser to collect food and funds for local food banks.
