Team ATG Overall Winner of Lawyers Feeding Illinois Campaign

We recently received the official word from our friends at Lawyers Feeding Illinois — Team ATG won the Hunger Relief Partner Award and the Large Law Firm Category for the most food and money raised!

The combined efforts of the ATG members and staff totaled $25,395 in funds and 732 pounds of food. These contributions will go a long way toward supporting Feeding Illinois in its effort to stock the eight regional food banks in our state. In total, Lawyers Feeding Illinois raised 1.25 million meals to feed 1.4 million residents across the state. We’d like to offer a special “thank you” to the ATG members whose offices served as drop sites. Another special thanks to ATG top member firms Codilis and Associates and Pierce and Associates, each of whom made sizeable financial donations to Team ATG. We could not have done it without you.

We can all be proud of the meaningful work we did to help curb the very serious problem of hunger in Illinois. Thank you so much for your generous support of this great cause. Congratulations to all the lawyers and groups who made this campaign a success. Read the LFI Campaign Wrap-up for details.

The competition winners will be honored at a ceremony on May 8 at the ISBA’s Chicago Regional Office. Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, whose office supported the campaign, will be on hand to help present the awards:

This was a cooperative effort among lawyers from all corners of Illinois. Illinois judges supported LFI by placing collection containers for non-perishable food items in courthouses in all parts of the state. Additional financial support for the project came from Attorneys’ Title Guaranty Fund and ISBA Mutual Insurance Company. Numerous local, ethnic and special bar associations also participated. Information about the campaign is available at

Thanks for your participation.
