FBA 2018 Annual Awards and Installation Dinner

On Thursday, October 11, 2018, we hosted our Annual Awards and Installation Dinner at the Four Seasons Hotel, Brickell.  This is the FBA’s yearly gala and  almost all of our federal judges came out to celebrate with us.  During the dinner, we presented the ninth Edward B. Davis Award for Service to the Federal Bench and Bar to the Honorable Alan S. Gold.  Judge Gold, now retired, was welcomed back into the district with open arms.  When accepting the award, Judge Gold paid homage to Judge Davis.  Judge Gold thanked the Judiciary, his friends and former colleagues, his court staff, and his family, including his wife of 54 years!  Judge Gold was introduced by George Knox.  Mr. Knox gave an inspired introduction to Judge Gold, reminiscing about their long friendship, extolling Judge Gold’s many virtues, and highlighting some of the high profile matters Judge Gold handled while on the bench.  We also installed incoming President, David S. Weinstein, and the Board Members.
