Installation Dinner and the Stars of California Magic

June 1, 2015

By Tom O’Sullivan

 We kicked off the new 2015-16 CalCPA year May 5 with the Installation Dinner and the Stars of California Magic, which was held at the Crow Canyon Country Club. Newly licensed CPAs and members attended in spite of both the Cinco de Mayo celebrations and the Golden State Warriors NBA playoff basketball game.

During cocktail hour, magicians roamed the room to perform in front of small groups. It was a great opportunity to meet new people and be entertained. It was wonderful to see the magic performed up close. Many of us were sure that we had figured out the trick, but the magician’s sleight of hand proved us wrong.

After the dinner, immediate past president Tom Bret thanked his team for a successful 2014-15. Then, I introduced and thanked our team for 2015-16. A special thank you to program associate Soco Davenport for organizing and coordinating the event.
