Past DANY Young Lawyers Events

December 21, 2020 to February 21, 2021

The DANY Virtual 5K Run to 2021 was held between December 21, 2020 and February 21, 2021.  Runners participated from all over the State of New York and across the country!   The proceeds from the race benefited The Food Bank for New York City and The DANY Scholarship Fund.   Participants could run or walk anywhere and anytime between the start and end date.  There were two divisions: the Participation Division and the Competitive Division.   

We were able to raise $1,814 for The Food Bank of New York City.  This helps The Food Bank pay for 9,370 meals!  If you are interested in learning more about the Food Bank for New York City, please check out this website:

A big thank you to everyone who participated or donated!

Young Lawyers Committee - Golf and Networking Event

June 7, 2018

On this day, lawyers with 10 years of experience of less joined some more experienced attorneys in hitting golf balls with instructor tips at Chelsea Piers in Manhattan.  The group then took a nice walk on the High Line (see photos below) and landed at the Half King for food, beverages, networking and socializing.  DANY thanks its sponsor iMedView for supporting this event, and also thanks its Young Lawyers Committee for making this happen - it was a great experience for all involved.
