Carbert Waite LLP was honoured to support this year’s Great Bar Band Battle, on May 31st, 2018 in Calgary. Thanks to the involvement and support from the Calgary Bar Association and many other sponsors, Carbert Waite proudly included, $34,000 in donations was raised for Calgary Legal Guidance.
Calgary Legal Guidance (“CLG”) is a non-profit organization that provides access to free legal assistance, information, and advocacy to people experiencing financial hardship who need legal services and representation. CLG offers a variety of in-house programs including Homeless Outreach, Immigration Law Project, and Social Benefits Advocacy. With six legal clinics in Alberta, CLG provides many low income Albertans with access to legal services they would otherwise not be able to afford.
The Great Bar Band Battle fundraising event consisted of six bands with members from the Alberta legal community, each competing for the coveted Championship Cup. The winners this year were Rodney and Welders, who performed an all Elvis set.
