Widener University School of Law held its annual Philadelphia Alumni Reception on Thursday, March 22, 2007 at The Crystal Tea Room located in Philadelphia's Wanamaker Building. In keeping with tradition, the reception was attended by more than 250 alumni, judges, friends, students, faculty, and staff. This year's reception featured a silent auction and was able to raise more than $5,000 benefitting the Widener Law Fund. There were over 50 items to bid on but some of the more popular included a one week stay in an Ocean City, NJ beach house, autographed Philadelphia sports team memorabilia and tickets to games, jewelry, a Brighton pocketbook, and famed restaurant gift certificates. The Philadelphia Alumni Reception gives everyone the opportunity to network and socialize with fellow Widener Law alumni. Next year's event will be held on Wednesday, March 19, 2008 and we look forward to seeing you there. Mark your calendar!
