Thanks to everyone who came out for the AABANY Holiday Party on Dec. 6 at Kristalbelli. Many members and friends gathered to kick off the holiday season, filling up nearly the entire space on the second floor. We kicked off the AABANY drive to 1,000 paid members campaign and collected donations for Typhoon Haiyan Relief. Donors received free tickets to the Joint Bar Holiday Party taking place that same night at Copacabana. They also had their business cards entered in a raffle drawing for two All-Access tickets to a Nets game at the Barclay Center in January. The prize was donated by our party sponsor, Hudson Court Reporting. Thanks to Hudson for sponsoring! The Holiday Party ended around 9 pm and a number of the attendees headed over to the Joint Bar Holiday Party at the Copacabana, not letting the rain get in the way of continuing the holiday celebrations.
