We are proud to announce that tickets are now on sale for one of our biggest events of the year, the 2015 Hoya New Year Extravaganza! We will be holding it again at Mission Rock Resort, a beautiful waterfront restaurant in the Mission Bay/Dogpatch neighborhood.  Over 85 Hoyas showed up last year for food, drinks, raffle prizes, great times and Hoya spirit, and we anticipate a similar (or perhaps even bigger) crowd this year.

Club members should have already received a discount code in their e-mail to receive $10 off the ticket price, bring the total down to $35. If you would like to become an official NorCal Hoyas member, please follow the instructions here, and once we receive your registration we will e-mail you the discount code.

Also, if you buy your tickets before Sunday, January 4, you will receive TWO raffle tickets instead of one! So please, buy early to double your chances. We will have some great prizes available, they are listed on the event website here but will be updated as the January 9 approaches!

We hope you will join us, please e-mail us back at norcalhoyas@gmail.com if you have any questions. In the meantime, have a happy Hoya Holiday season!

We are proud to announce that the Georgetown Club of Northern California will be honored as the 2015 Georgetown Alumni Club of the Year, and our president, Matt Kamenski (C'07), will be honored as the 2015 Alumni Volunteer of the Year! We want to share this success with our loyal members and anyone who has ever attended one of our events - without your support, we cannot do what we do! So thank you all so very much for helping us be the alumni club that we want to be for you, and we hope to celebrate these honors with you soon.
