I am fortunate to have a standing invitation to Berger Montague’s Holiday Party. (I worked on a project from 1/02 -6/04 and then from 8/05 – 12/06 I worked with Diane from Berger on a project in NYC). Diane and I went to the party together and we had a terrific time.
One of the things I enjoy most about going to this annual event is seeing a lot of my old friends and catching up.
The room at the Westin was really beautiful this year.
Last year’s room; I think the Westin got a better decorator cause that pink rug had to go and the room looks so much better now
Here are two of my favorites Brett and Helen Gym Flaherty. Brett is an outstanding attorney, a great dad and an amazing athlete, but Helen is the savior of children every where. I first met Helen back when she championed the effort to keep the stadiums out of Chinatown, an issue my life partner was also concerned with. Another cause Helen near to her heart is education. Recently on Frontline she was quoted as saying, “Education is not a business. At some point, quality of education and the concept of profit will conflict and that quality of public education will suffer.” Brett and Helen are the proud parents of three children, and I am going to find a house for them in Fairmount so they can be my neighbors and I can see them more often.
