BSLUG ANNUAL HOLIDAY PARTY & SMITH SOCIETY FUNDRAISER, FRIDAY, DEC. 4

Mark your calendars--the annual B-SLUG (Boston-area Local UC Santa Cruz Graduates) Holiday Party will take place on Friday evening, Dec. 4 at the home of fellow alum and very generous host, Sloan Nota.

This year we have a VERY SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY to raise a ton of money for the Smith Renaissance Society. A matching campaign is being launched that will allow every dollar B-SLUGs donate to generate $2 in value. In addition, Bill Dickinson will match all that we raise, up to $1500. This means every dollar we donate will generate $3 of value--how fantastic is that!
