8th Annual New Jersey Networking Event & Dinner

On Thursday, March 7, 2019, the British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia hosted the eighth annual New Jersey Networking Event and Dinner at The British Chip Shop in Haddonfield, New Jersey. The event sold out shortly after registration opened!  Approximately 50 BABCPHL members and friends occupied the restaurant for a fun-filled pub night.  The new Chip Shop proprietors offered attendees an outstanding selection of specialty beers and delicious appetizers, a traditional British pub style main course, and traditional tea and biscuits and sticky toffee pudding for dessert.  Adding to the enjoyment of the evening, the Philadelphia Union presented each attendee with two complimentary tickets to a Philadelphia Union home game, and lead sponsor, United Airlines offered three mileage plus gold status memberships.

Howard Silverstone, BABCPHL Membership Chairman, welcomed attendees. Howard introduced special guest, Ross Allen, Director, North America, Department for International Trade who discussed the important relationship the State of New Jersey has with the United Kingdom.  Howard thanked Ross and his team for supporting the BABCPHL, and provided guests with a brief introduction about the Organization, before asking each event sponsor to say a few words.  Leon Dutkiewicz, Partner, Citrin Cooperman; Jay Jumper, Partner, Pepper Hamilton; and Richard Chibbaro, Sales Manager, United Airlines, each spoke briefly about their relationship with the BABCPHL and their companies.  Following sponsor remarks, winning business cards were drawn for three United Airlines mileage plus status memberships.  Attendees were then invited to sit and enjoy dinner.  Guests remained long into the evening, continuing to mingle.

We extend special thanks to lead sponsors, Citrin Cooperman, Pepper Hamilton LLP, and United Airlines; supporting sponsors, the Department for International Trade and Forensic Resolutions; and door prize donor, Philadelphia Union.
