FBA Award and Installation Dinner

On October 23, 2019, the South Florida Chapter of the Federal Bar Association hosted its annual Award and Installation Dinner at the Four Seasons Hotel Miami in Brickell.   We were filled to capacity, and a great time was had by all at the cocktail hour and the dinner.

We presented the tenth Edward B. Davis Award for Service to the Federal Bench & Bar to the Honorable Patricia A. Seitz, United States District Judge, and we installed incoming President, Alaina Fotiu-Wojtowicz, and the Chapter officers and directors.  The Honorable Cecilia M. Altonaga gave a heartfelt introduction to Judge Seitz, recounting her memories of clerking for Judge Davis, and describing the amazing human being that he was.  Judge Altonaga then transitioned to providing the details as to Judge Seitz and all her wonderful, outstanding and trailblazing accomplishments throughout her career.   Judge Seitz warmly received the NED award, where she expressed heartfelt gratitude to the board of directors for choosing her, and remarked how honored she was to have been bestowed an award named in honor of Judge Davis.

A special thank you to our sponsors!
