We ventured into a new type of programming and venue as we tasted LA’s wines at Angeleno Wine Company. Members came together to enjoy the five delicious wines that the winery offers, network, decorate calaveras, indulge in tasty wine pairing snacks and celebrating a birthday. The event also served as a fundraiser for our annual scholarships. We had great venue hosts!
To continue on our financial responsibility series that launched with our Managing Your Student Debt workshop, we joint forces with the Los Angeles Chapter of the Gates Millennium Scholarship Alumni Association. We hosted Dominique Jordan, a member of the Gates Millennium Scholarship Alumni Association and Financial Advisor for Morgan Stanley, as he shared with our members information on how to build assets in preparation for retirement. Our members reviewed key components of the Morgan Stanley Financial Planning Playbook and walked away with next steps and new connections across the two chapters.
We are very happy to have hosted our second annual Summer Welcome Party as we welcome the newest members of the LA community into the Cal familia. We facilitated games, discussions and overall simple community as we shared our favorite Cal memories and most cherished advice with the newest Golden Bears and their loved ones.
We are proud to share that we hosted our third Bears Night Out bringing various alumni across Cal generations to network and enjoy each others’ company as we also fundraised for our annual scholarships. We were excited to also indulge in some delicious empanadas and other snacks that allow us to celebrate the richness of the Latinx cultures.
We hosted our second Cal Night at Dodger Stadium to fundraise for our annual Scholarship. We were able to host alumni and their families as we cheered on for the boys in blue and claimed our Kike Hernandez T-Jersey.
