The Social Committee plans, promotes, and facilitates fun activities and events that appeal to our employees. The committee has organized employee outings, events, themed-parties, contests, and fundraising events. Some of these events include Happy Hours, Chili Cook-Offs, Railcats Outings, Roller Skating, the Chicago Polar Plunge, the Hot Chocolate 5k Run, Halloween Parties, the "Most Outrageous Holiday Sweater Contest," and raising money for local community charities.
At our Annual After Tax Season Party, we honor an employee with a special award to recognize their hard work. The Thomas W. Havey Team Spirit Award is given to a person who has proven to be loyal to the Firm and works very well with colleagues, clients, staff, and partners. This person embodies the team spirit Mr. Havey spent many years building. This year’s award winner joins many other recipients on the prominent plaque in the front hallway of the Westchester office who fly the flag for Legacy day in and day out – with both clients and among all of us who work for the Firm. The 2020 recipient is Angelica Palacios. Congratulations to Angelica!
Each year, the Firm hosts a summer celebration, where everyone can visit and enjoy an afternoon out of the office. The event includes a fantastic luncheon and is followed by our Annual Bean Bag Tournament. We are all looking forward to future events where we can gather safely.
