Racing & Baking for the Kids

October 1, 2012

Lawliners after the race

This past Saturday, a group of Lawliners participated in the 2012 Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC RBC Race for the Kids. It was a beautiful 2.5 mile race through Riverside Park. Afterwards, Nickelodeon hosted a Day of Play for the kids. Michele got to experience every kid's dream and got slimmed.

However the real work came beforehand from donations raised from family, friends, bake sale, and penny wars.

In the penny wars, we had the office split into two teams and compete to raise pennies for their own team while helping the opposite team lose by giving quarters, dollars, and nickels. In the end, Team 1 "won" and will be getting a frozen yogurt party.  However the real winners are the kids.

For Lawline's 1st bake sale, we sold Confetti Sugar Cookies, Pumpkin Pies, Red Velvet Cupcakes, and Chocolate Chip Banana Walnut Muffins (say that 5 times fast!). The yummy treats were baked by Casey, Trisha, myself, and Symphonie(not pictured). Stephanie not only provided refreshments but was the salesperson. The bake sale was more successful than predicted due to everyone's awesome teamwork. Dave S., Lawline's president, matched the bake sale profits from his own pockets.

Lawline.com donated itself $1,525.00 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC! With the collective effort, we raised $3,480.22. We're so proud to give to such a good cause and have so much fun while doing it!
