Bay Ridge Lawyers’ post-holiday holiday party continues to be a success
The Bay Ridge Lawyers Association hosted its annual holiday party on Wednesday, Jan. 15 at the Dyker Beach Golf Course where its members shared dinner, danced and celebrated the New Year together.
The group has now celebrated its last three holiday parties after the holidays. It’s a recent tradition that started because many of the borough’s judges and attorneys are members of multiple bar associations. Between all of the parties hosted by bar associations, law firms and law school alumni associations, December can be an incredibly hectic month.
The move also coincided with the start of the BRLA’s now annual “Breakfast with Santa” party that was started by past President Margaret Stanton. So, not only do its members get a break from yet another December obligation, but the group can focus its efforts on bringing Christmas joy to the neighborhood.
The move has paid off too as attendance at the annual holiday party has increased over the last few years. The group even moved from the restaurant Encore on Fourth Avenue to the Dyker Beach Golf Course this year to accommodate more guests.
The evening was just a simple celebration amongst friends. Only long-time member Ray Ferrier and President Maryann Stathopoulos briefly spoke.
The BRLA will host its next meeting, which features a continuing legal education seminar by Dale Fong-Frederick on legal fees, at Mama Rao’s in Dyker Heights on Wednesday, Jan. 29.
