Dressed to Impress
Dressed to impress and feeling victorious, more than 400 people came out on a cold January 21 night to enjoy an "Evening of Elegance" at the 2013 Central New York Presidential Inaugural Gala at the Syracuse OnCenter in upstate New York. Hosted by 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, this inaugural gala was to designed not only to celebrate the re-election of President Obama and honor the life and dreams of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., but to thank 1199SEIU members and Central New York's devoted volunteers for their hard work during the election season. "I think it's a good way to bring a national election home to the community," said Marty Liquori, union chairman for the maintenance and clerical division at Crouse Hospital, "the hard work we put in and the votes that we cast did make a difference."
