Wednesday, May 15: Georgetown City Challenge (sponsored by Georgetown Club of Northern California and Georgetown Technology Alliance)
Support Georgetown undergraduate students while helping San Francisco rise above the rest to win the 2013 Georgetown Alumni Association City Challenge! Over this 24-hour period, we will boost Alumni Giving participation, and participants can monitor results in real time: minute by minute and city by city. At the end of the day, the city with the highest percentage of alumni making a gift of any size will win a $25,000 scholarship named for their city. So, please visit the City Challenge website, make a gift, help SF win, monitor results, and check out the additional surprise challenges unique to our city that will be revealed over the course of the day!


5/23 City Challenge Update: Thank you to ALL who participated, particularly Murphy Gallagher (C'06), whose matching funds helped us raise an additional $13,000+ towards Georgetown scholarships.  We raised our alumni giving participation rate to 27.67%, ahead of Los Angeles, making us the top Georgetown alumni giving city on the West Coast.  Let's take on some of those Midwest and East Coast cities next year!

Thursday, June 6, 6-9pm: Hoya Professional Development Month Networking Happy Hour (at Dr. Teeth & the Electric Mayhem, in the Mission)
June is Hoya Professional Development month, and we are hosting a networking happy hour at a Hoya owned bar and restaurant in the Mission (Ben Bleiman, COL '03). Please RSVP at the Eventbrite link here and bring your business cards, we'll have our own private space on the back patio and it should be a great time!

Saturday, June 29: NorCal Young Alumni Winery Tour and Tasting
Please check out the details here. This should be a fantastic event and at only $30 including transportation is an amazing value - tickets are limited, so reserve your spot soon!

SAVE THE DATE: Sunday, July 21, SF Giants Tailgate and Game
For the second year in a row, the NorCal Hoyas will descend upon AT&T Park to tailgate and watch the Giants play America's summer past time. We have a limited number of tickets, which will be made available first to dues-paying club members (fees waived for last two graduating classes). So if you haven't already made your contribution to the club in the past year, please do so here through our new, streamlined system.

August and September: New Student Send-Off and Welcome to the Neighborhood Happy Hour
Please keep in mind two of our favorite annual club events at the end of the summer.

More events may be added over the course of the summer, so stay tuned!
