North Shore Law partner Mark Slay drums up $13K in donations for charity

Still Living at Home emerged victorious at the 18th Annual Battle of the Bar Bands fundraiser, taking home the Benevolence Cup 

Mark Slay is a firm partner and senior family law lawyer with expertise in complex financial cases, but we also know him as a dedicated volunteer who gives back to the community. In addition to his involvement in local and national Bar associations, legal clinics and amateur sports clubs over the years, he is a longtime musician and rumoured Elvis impersonator.

Mark is also the drummer for Still Living at Home, a classic rock cover band formed in 1985. This group of friends continues playing charity events together, performing many times at the annual Battle of the Bar Bands fundraiser hosted by the Canadian Bar Association (BC) Benevolent Society.

This year, Mark and his bandmates played a sold-out house of 1,500 people at Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom on June 2. Wowing the audience with their performance, they raised more than $13,000 in the process. At the end of the night, after performances by six other bands, Still Living at Home were declared the Benevolence Cup winners—making this their sixth Battle of the Bar Bands victory, and their first win in ten years. 

The CBA (BC) Benevolent Society provides emergency funding to lawyers, students and their families in times of crisis when no other resources are available, and North Shore Law has contributed to the Society for many years. We hope you’ll join us at next year’s show to help raise money for this excellent cause.
