Robert Kotwicki Attends the Association of Legal Administrators Northern Virginia Chapter Holiday Party

On Thursday, December 7, 2017, CGG office manager, Robert Kotwicki, attended the Association of Legal Administrators (ALA) Northern Virginia Chapter Holiday Party held annually at Maggiano's in Tysons Corner. The ALA is a resource for law firm administrators to share ideas with other administrators, and to keep up to date with emerging technologies through the valuable business partners. In addition to having a chance to socialize with other law firm administrators and business partners prior to the holidays, it was also a good chance to gather toys for a good cause. The ALA collected toys for The Salvation Army Angel Tree Program. The Angel Tree Program provides Christmas gifts for children whose families are struggling and can't afford gifts at Christmas time. The goal is to make sure each child has two wrapped toys to open at Christmas, in addition to their essential gifts. The toys that were collected went to The Fairfax Salvation Army located at 4915 Ox Road, Fairfax, VA 22030.
