VID Winter Holiday Party Recap!

Jan 09, 2024

The weather outside was frosty on January 6 but the spirit was warm at VID’s awesome winter holiday party, hosted by Irene Kaufman and Daniel Neiden at their wonderful home.

More than 80 members and friends attended the party, which was also graced by the presence of elected officials, including State Senator Brad Hoylman-Sigal, Assemblymembers Deborah Glick and Harvey Epstein, and NY City Council Members Erik Bottcher and Christopher Marte. Kudos to VID member Linda Jacobson and everyone who worked so hard to make the party a success.

What a great way to celebrate our collective political successes and get pumped up for the challenging 2024 election cycle!

Great job, everyone!
