YLD Holiday Party Dec. 16 at Four SeasonsThe Young Lawyers Division Annual Holiday Party, Award Ceremony and Gift Drive will be Tuesday, Dec. 16 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at The Four Seasons Philadelphia, 1 Logan Square. The Craig M. Perry Service Award will be presented to Kimberly Takacs of ACE Group. The F. Sean Peretta Service Award will be presented to Stephany Gordon of Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law. The Vision Award will be presented to The Legal Intelligencer. The event is sponsored by Kaplan Leaman & Wolfe Court Reporting & Litigation Support. In conjunction with the Holiday Party, the YLD is coordinating a Holiday Gift Drive to benefit Project HOME and Cradles to Crayons. Since 1989, Project HOME has helped more than 8,000 people break the cycle of homelessness and poverty by providing a continuum of care that includes street outreach, supportive housing and comprehensive services that focus on health care, education and employment through both adult and youth education and enrichment programs at the Honickman Learning Center and Comcast Technology Labs and community-based health care services.
Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive - at home, at school and at play. Cradles supplies these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.
At the Holiday Party, the YLD will be accepting donations of new unwrapped toys. Please bring an unwrapped gift with you to the Holiday Party, and please encourage your colleagues and friends to do the same! The YLD will also collect small monetary donations (in any amount you can spare) at the holiday party in case you are unable to bring a toy.
If your firm would like to assist in our effort to provide holiday gifts for those less fortunate in our community, or if you would like more information about the holiday drive, please contact Phil Amoa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
