The award, which recognizes Day Pitney’s service to the Center and its clients, was presented at the Center’s 25th-anniversary celebration held at The Tavern at Keney Park in Windsor, Connecticut, on May 30. Day Pitney attorney Andraya Pulaski Brunau, who serves on the Center’s board of directors, was in attendance along with fellow attorneys including the firm’s Pro Bono Committee Chair Theresa Kelly, who accepted the award on behalf of the firm. A number of Day Pitney attorneys work on pro bono matters for the Center, including Joseph Scully, Joseph Nawrocki, Elizabeth Retersdorf and Ignacio Riesco.
