Attorneys to bowl for charity in support of Regional Food Bank

Phillips Murrah attorneys will put their bowling skills to the test at the annual Striking Out Hunger Bowling Tournament, hosted by Oklahoma County Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division (YLD) next month.

McMahan, Phillips Murrah litigation attorney and OCBA YLD board member. “The goal is to raise funds for the Regional Food Bank, which distributed 56.5 million pounds of food to Oklahomans last year alone.”

McMahan, who was recently elected to serve as a member of the YLD Board of Directors, is leading the Firm’s involvement in the tournament.

“This event is a great opportunity to have a fun night with the other young lawyers and get to know the Oklahoma County judges in a fun setting, all while raising funds for a great cause,” she said.

The tournament will be hosted from 6-8:30 PM on Aug. 25 at Heritage Lanes Bowling Center, and the Firm will be competing in two teams.

“OCBA YLD’s normal programming has been disrupted over the past year, so we have a lot of catching up to do – both socially and in giving,” McMahan said. “We hope to have a great turnout at bowling for both reasons.”

Those interested in registering a team may do so by Aug. 24, and sponsorship arrangements may be made through Aug. 16. For more information, visit www.okcbar.org or call the OCBA office at (405) 236-8421.

Phillips Murrah’s participation in the bowling tournament continues a tradition of supporting the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma through OCBA’s and the YLD’s philanthropic efforts.
