Buon Natale!

Last night I attended the huge Christmas party sponsored by The Justinian Society of Italian-American lawyers at the Benjamin Franklin Ballroom in Philadelphia.
This party is always the highlight of the holiday season for the legal community in Philadelphia and it attracts hundreds of participants who enjoy the bounty of an Italian Christmas: pasta, provolone, prosciutto, shrimp, crab, salmon, roast beef, turkey, and of course, cannoli. Holiday garland and lights festoon the festive ballroom and strolling musicians serenade party goers. Shown here at the event are incoming Philadelphia Bar Association Chancellor Michael Pratt, the vivacious Shelly Fedullo and the ever-affable Judge Denis Cohen of the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas. We saw so many old and dear friends: Don and Vinni Marino, Gabe Bevilacqua, Barbara Capozzi, Gina Furia Rubel, Rick Furia, Michael Viola, Bill Fedullo, Scott Sigman, Molly Peckman, Sayde Ladov, Vito Canuso, Alex Giacobetti, Bobbi Pichini, Judge Al DiBona, Judge Lou Presenza, Judge Annette Rizzo and more lawyers, judges and city officials than we could possibly mention here.
The is the one event where the warmth and good feeling of the evening lingers long after the night has ended. Buon Natale!
