Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti at The Event Center at SugarHouse Casino
Mar 23 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Powerhouse vocalist, Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti, best known for belting Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” on Season 11 of “America’s Got Talent,” is bringing his flawless vocals of the Great American Songbook to The Event Center at SugarHouse Casino on Saturday, March 23, at 8 p.m.

Not only did Valentinetti take “America’s Got Talent” by storm in 2016 with his “Santa Baby” duet performed with judge Heidi Klum, his impressionable old-school vocals earned him a large social media following, reaching up to a quarter million views per video. Although Valentinetti did not win the overall competition, his new career as a professional musician launched him to stardom at just 20 years old.

Valentinetti released his first EP in the spring of 2017 that climbed to number two on the Billboard Jazz chart and recently released his popular, soulful holiday album in November of 2018. Since then, the now 24-year-old has been touring with his band “The Black Tie Brass” and selling out shows around the country.

Handling Business Disputes Lunch
Apr 4 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Join us on Thursday, April 4, 2019 from 12:00-1:30pm at our Philadelphia office for a complimentary lunch and presentation for business leaders and advisors on best practices for handling business disputes. The program will discuss how to navigate business litigation including topics around when and where to sue, whether to send a cease and desist letter, when insurance or indemnification coverage applies, the duties around document and evidence preservation, and why your first call should be to a litigator to resolve the dispute (instead of another kind of lawyer or handling the issue yourself). We will also share tactics for promoting early settlement, the pros and cons of bench vs. jury trials and various “alternative dispute resolution” methods like early neutral evaluations, mediation and arbitration.

Please RSVP by Monday, April 1, 2019 to attend. Feel free to share this invite with other contacts who could benefit from the program. Looking forward to seeing you there!
