DETROIT, MI – One hundred and seventy attendees joined together at the Michigan Irish American Chamber of Commerce 2nd Annual Gala on Thursday, November 13 at the Gaelic League in Detroit. Members, friends and family gathered together to honor Justice Cavanagh who has held many impressive job titles such as Lansing City Attorney, judge of the 54-A District Court and served on Michigan Court of Appeals as the youngest person ever elected to that position; Honorable James L. Ryan was the Master of Ceremonies.

082IMG_28771“Judge Cavanagh and Judge Ryan served together on the supreme court and are very good friends. The evening was humorous as they shared stories and jokes regarding their experiences and friendship,” says O’Connor. “The MIACC is steadily growing and we deliver great events for our members, including high profile guest speakers like Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Henderson who headlined the inaugural gala in 2013 and shared his thoughts about Mayor Duggan and the future direction of Detroit.”

Music, provided by Pat Johnson of DJ Paddy, played while the guests mixed and mingled before dinner was served. Slows BBQ did a phenomenal job, as always, and everyone was satisfied. As people slowly finished dinner, the award ceremony started and no one held back. Everyone who got on stage offered truly funny, and also very kind, words about those who were on the receiving end of an award. It was an entertaining evening of accolades for those who deserved it most.

Other honorable mentions of the night include Tim Higgins who was given the Presidents Leadership Award, Mike Kelly who was awarded the Entrepreneur of the Year Award and Patricia Sullivan who was given the Business Law Award.
