We are thrilled for and totally proud of one of our dearest friends, Larry Vilardo, pictured here getting sworn in for his confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Larry is awaiting Senate confirmation as the next United States District Court Judge for the Western District of New York. We were delighted to host the entire Vilardo family this week as we all proudly attended Larry’s hearing. The Vilardos and Gutmans also had dinner the night before the hearing with the Warners, nearly 40 year mutual friends. Congrats Larry.
