I was honored to attend the State Bar of Georgia’s Young Lawyers Division (YLD) Signature Annual Fundraiser, “Stars and Stripes,” this past weekend. Officially in its ninth year, the Signature Fundraiser raises money and support for a nonprofit organization chosen by the YLD. This year’s proceeds from the event went to sponsor the Augusta Warrior Project, an organization that provides assistance to men and women who have served our country. In addition, the YLD bestowed the 2015 Signature Service Award to former YLD President, Damon E. Elmore of Nowell Sparks LLC. Elmore, who currently serves as President of the Board of Directors of the Georgia Legal Services Program (GLSP), has spent many of his weekends during the past year cycling in each of Georgia‚Äôs 159 counties in an effort to raise awareness and money for GLSP. During his acceptance speech, Damon thanked The Partners Group’s very own David Gruskin as someone who played a valuable role in his involvement and experience with YLD. The Partners Group congratulates Damon and we are proud to have been a sponsor for this wonderful event benefiting our veterans!
