A Night of Networking and Hockey

On Jan. 14, Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP is offering their suite at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Fla., to raise funds for the ABI Endowment. Attendees will watch the Tampa Bay Lightning take on the Los Angeles Kings, so be sure to save the date for this event! The hockey game takes place the night before the 44th Annual Alexander L. Paskay Memorial Bankruptcy Seminar, also happening in Tampa. We sold out for this event last year, so be sure to add this date to your calendar!

Contact ABI Sales Manager Sharisa L. Sloan to join us for this event.
