21st Annual PICPA Thanksgiving Luncheon

 LifePath was proud to partner with the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants for the Annual Thanksgiving Benefit and Awards Luncheon held on Wednesday, November 21, 2018 at the Holiday Inn and Conference Center in Breinigsville! Speaking to a sold-out room of over 610 registered guests, baseball legend Steve Garvey humbly spoke of hard work, perseverance and caring about others. LifePath guests enjoyed an open bar cocktail hour, Chinese, silent and live auction items, and an awards presentation (Mike Albarell - Community Service Person of the Year and Cathy Brodhead - Family of the Year). 
LifePath and the PICPA are pleased to present keynote speakers that have appeal and character. Past speakers have included Jim Craig, Johnny Bench, Dick Vermeil, Jim Palmer, Mike Schmidt, Pete Rose, Bobby Collins and others! This event is a great way to support LifePath while joining with the rest of the Lehigh Valley in kicking off the holiday season. Attendance is 600 individuals strong and includes an open bar cocktail hour, sit-down luncheon, keynote speaker, awards presentation, Chinese, silent and live auction events.

Thank you for being our Friend-watch!
