On August 9, AABANY hosted an evening of ping pong and pool at Slate, co-sponsored by Merrill Lynch/BofA.  Karen Wu, co-chair of the Pro Bono and Community Service Committee, co-organized the event with Kai Cheng of Merrill Lynch/BofA.  Attendees included Bobby Liu, General Counsel at MD Sass, past president James Chou, current President Jean Lee, and the Hon. Robert Reed.  Karen ran a mini speed tournament in which contestants took turns exchanging volleys.  Participants received goodies donated by JOOLA, official sponsor of USA Table Tennis.  The ping pong took place in a private section of Slate that was reserved for AABANY.  Those who were more inclined to billiards went downstairs and shot some 8 ball and 9 ball at the pool tables.  A wonderful time was had by all. Thanks to everyone who came!
