Blakes rounds it up for flood victims

|Written By Gail J. Cohen

Lawyers at Blake Cassels and Graydon offices around the country dressed with a western flair on Thursday for the firm's "Round Up for Calgary" event to help support colleagues and other Calgary residents hit by the floods. In a note to staff, managing partner Rob Granatstein urged everyone to participate in the fundraising: "Let’s let them know we will be 'stampeding' along with them."

As of last night, a Blakes spokesperson told Legal Feeds more than $20,000 had been raised over one and a half days and "we're still counting." Events in the various offices  included several different raffles, an on-line auction with fabulous prizes, pizza sales, and the sale of "Round-Up for Calgary" buttons.

Montreal articling students Andréanne Morin and Patrick Lapierre also showed off their western styles!
Articling students in Toronto get into the spirit: (l to r) Reet Hess, Sarah Stewart (student co-ordinator), Zac Resnick, Peter Flynn, Andrew Cyr, Eric Brousseau. Bottom row: Yousaf Khan, Hugh Goodday.
