Later Hall of Fame Ceremonies: 2013
Thursday night, I was at the Tilles Center Atrium at LIU Post for the first ever WCWP Hall of Fame induction ceremony. The inaugural inductees were Art Beltrone, Hank Neimark, Dr. Herb Coston, and Prof. Virgil Jackson Lee. The latter two were inducted posthumously.
You can see the rest of my pictures from this fantastic night in my public Facebook photo album. Enjoy!

Pete Bellotti, Mike Phillips, Jeff Kroll, Phil Leibowitz:

I didn’t want to create photo confusion between the professional photographer and myself. So, after this one, the remaining pictures are candid shots:
