Firm Halloween Party raises funds for Harvest Food Drive

Phillips Murrah staff members dress up for the Firm’s Annual Halloween Costume Contest

Phillips Murrah staff members were given the chance to test their creativity and help raise money for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma on Tuesday at the Firm’s annual Halloween Party.

Contestants competed to win the annual costume contest, and Phillips Murrah raised $670 from those in attendance for Firm’s Annual Harvest Food Drive fundraising campaign.

Monica Ball, Accounting, and Nathan Hatcher, Assistant Marketing Director, took First Place for their creative spins on mischievous clowns. Second Place was awarded to Receptionist Rachel Schones, who classically posed as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, and Third Place was won by Tess Bromme, who dressed as a Jedi from Star Wars.

“Greeting staff and clients in costume is always amusing,” Schones said. “The creativity of costumes from the Phillips Murrah community never ceases to impress.”

Phillips Murrah partners with the Oklahoma County Bar Association to support their annual Harvest Food Drive, which all proceeds are donated to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.

“The long-standing partnership with the Oklahoma County Bar Association continues to promote the Regional Food Bank’s mission of local fundraising and positive influence,” said Patent Attorney Cody J. Cooper, who serves as a Harvest Food Drive Board Member. “Each year, local fundraisers, such as the Harvest Food Drive, directly supports our Oklahoma residents in an impactful manner.”

The Oklahoma County Bar Association Young Lawyers Division promotes their seasonal fundraiser to support feeding Oklahomans in-need. With the bar association and Phillips Murrah’s 20-year partnership, the Harvest Food Drive has become one of three largest fundraisers for the Regional Food Bank.

“The Firm’s partnership with the annual fundraiser remains to be an integral team effort, supporting the greater Oklahoma community,” said Attorney Hilary Hudson Clifton, Board Member of Harvest Food Drive.

Phillips Murrah continues to be one of the largest contributors to the Young Lawyers’ seasonal fundraising efforts.

Every Autumn, Phillips Murrah partners with local fundraising programs to support the Oklahoma City community. Recently, Phillips Murrah announced our Challenge Grant partnership with KOSU Radio, the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. This partnership will help school kids gain access to high quality, affordable and nutritious foods.
