Hoya Holiday Party (Wed., 12/11/2013)

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 11, 2013
Where: The Tasting Room
1924 Post Alley
Seattle, WA 98101
Cost: Free for members (and one guest each) and $25 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!”

Happy Hour before the Mike Birbiglia Show

UPDATE  – folks are reporting that an ad hoc POST show drink may be better than a pre-show drink at Jabu’s.  Let’s keep an eye out for one another and plan on migrating somewhere after the show.  See you soon!

Whether you are coming to Mike Birbiglia’s (CAS ’00) show or not, please join us before — and maybe after, too — the show at Jabu’s Pub (link: http://jabuspub.com/), mere steps away from the Playhouse.  The show starts at 7:30 pm so let’s all meet around 6:30 pm.
