John Carroll Weekend 2015 – Los Angeles

Did you know that John Carroll Weekend is coming to Los Angeles in about a month, April 16-19? As a West Coast Hoya, this means that the best of Georgetown is coming to you. This is expected to be the largest gathering EVER of Georgetown alumni west of the Mississippi!

John Carroll Weekend will feature a variety of events, including formal receptions, lectures, tours, tastings, and more. Please note that there is not an overall registration fee for John Carroll Weekend, but rather you can register for each event on an a la carte basis for your convenience (some are free, some have a cost). Consider coming for the whole weekend, staying for a day, or even catching a single event.

With spring sale fares for flights between our area and Los Angeles, this is a perfect opportunity to experience the best of Southern California with Georgetown. There are several Beverly Hills hotels with which Georgetown has negotiated special rates for the weekend, including a hotel specifically for young alumni. Visit jcw.georgetown.edu and click “Hotel” on the top menu bar.

Events are starting to fill up and others are being added, so we invite you to check out the schedule and register at http://jcw.georgetown.edu so that you can become part of this special Georgetown tradition.

Hoya Holiday Party 2014

Please join us at the lovely Tasting Room in the heart of Pike’s Place Market for our annual Hoya Holiday Party!  Sip on some amazing local wines and feast on some appetizers while you mix & mingle with fellow alumni and their nearest and dearest as we celebrate the holiday season.

When: Wednesday, December 10, 2014
Where: The Tasting Room
1924 Post Alley
Seattle, WA 98101
Cost: Free for members (and one guest each) and $20 for non-members
Parking: Feel free to take advantage of the parking specials available to Tasting Room guests (Space permitting) — Public Market Parking at 1531 Western Avenue is only $1 if you park after 5pm!

Though the event only goes from 6-8 p.m. (when the Tasting Room closes), after 8 we can head next door to Kell’s for some afterparty cocktails and food.

REMINDER:

This holiday season please consider giving to the “Georgetown University Club of Seattle Endowed Scholarship Fund” that we began earlier this year in connection with the university’s “1789 Imperative.”  The 1789 Imperative is intended to ensure the university’s ability to meet the financial needs of its undergraduate students.  The Seattle Club’s goal is to raise at least $100,000 through alumni donations to fund an endowment that provides tuition and related financial assistance to Georgetown students from our region who demonstrate financial need.

The best part of the Endowed Scholarship is that it requires minimal extra effort (and no extra money!) from you.  You only need to designate “Club of Seattle Endowed Scholarship” on your donation checks to Georgetown University, or, if you make your donations online, where it says “Direct your gift:” mark “Other” and then note “Club of Seattle Endowed Scholarship” on the “Other 1” field.  That’s it!  Your donation remains tax-deductible, and it counts both toward the “For Generations to Come” campaign and the Endowed Scholarship.  As Dean Gillis said when we launched the Seattle Club campaign, “it’s a classic twofer!”
