A Party with A Purpose

The Law Offices of Sonja B. Selami’s annual holiday party is quickly becoming an event that Bostonians (lucky enough to know Sonja) look forward to all year. Hosted by Sonja and her talented staff at their beautiful new location in Wellesley, the night was a glittering gathering of friends and associates from the Boston area and beyond. In addition to a fun holiday celebration, Sonja tied in the spirit of the giving season by holding a silent auction, and donating proceeds of the night all towards St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

Upon entering the Selami offices, guests could choose between oysters, fresh seafood and chowder by Legal Seafood of Boston to their left or salmon tartare spoons, Duck Confit Potstickers and more by celebrity chef Ming Tsai to their right. Others opted for dessert and chose champagne and imported Parisian Ladurée macarons showcased in the back of the virtually endless new office space.

Not only were guests able to enjoy some of Ming Tsai’s signature bites, but they got to meet and converse with the warm and gracious chef himself.

As guests enjoyed the holiday fare, music by Boston band Almost Owen rang through the Selami halls bringing the crowd together on the dance floor.

The atmosphere was abuzz with good music, holiday goodwill and cheer. And with the generosity of Selami’s friends and colleagues, they were able to raise money for an incredible cause in the truest spirit of giving.

Bostonian philanthropist, Ashley Bernon, said of the night, “I think it’s just awesome how Sonja has brought these people together. From business, to fashion, to real estate to philanthropy, everyone here in the end is here for an amazing charity.”

The goal of the event was to raise $10,000 for St. Jude’s, yet through the hard work of Sonja Selami and her team, they met and exceeded that goal.

Great company, delicious food, and warm hospitality provided by Sonja, could there be a better kickoff to the holiday season?
