“Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member Phaedra Parks will put her entertainment and legal acumen to work Saturday as a judge of the Atlanta Bar Foundation’s “LawJam” fundraiser.
The event, which starts at 7:15 p.m. at the Variety Playhouse, features the following acts: Bellwether Station, Book Club, CussinWillas, Marshall Seese and the Abandoned, Melanie & the Felonies, Section 8, Ship of Fools, and The Subpoenas. The rocking barristers will compete for top honors by collecting $1 per “vote” from the audience as well as by charming the judges.
Parks, who is an entertainment lawyer, will be joined by fellow judges Lisa F. Moore of the Moore Law Offices and Georgia Lawyers for the Arts and Brian R. Smith of Arnall Golden Gregory and lead singer of last year’s winning band, Tron Jackson.
The audience vote tally and judges’ decision will be combined to produce this year’s winner.
The event is open to the public at $30 per ticket. It’s $10 per ticket for law students. Proceeds benefit the Atlanta Bar Foundation, the charitable arm of the Atlanta Bar Association, which funds projects that support youth, pro bono legal services, higher education through scholarships and public understanding of the law. The Foundation also maintains an annual grant program to support pro bono legal service providers that serve low income citizens in the Atlanta.
