Annual Holiday Party, Sunday p.m., Dec. 2 in Somerville, Mass.

Mark your calendars! The annual BSLUG Holiday Party will take place on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 2 at the artist loft of our very generous host, Cowell alum, Jill Hoy.

The party is a fundraiser** for the Smith Renaissance Society, founded by Cowell alumnus Bill Dickinson. The Smith Society provides UCSC mentors, scholarships, and collegiate resources to foster children, homeless and runaway youth, orphans, and wards of the court.  BREAKING NEWS: Bill Dickinson will match what we raise up to $1500!

Thanks to the generosity of Jill Hoy, the festivities will be held at her lovely home Somerville, Mass. You'll not only enjoy the wonderful company of fellow UCSC alums, but also partake of delicious catered delights from Dave's Fresh Pasta in Somerville. Friends and family are also welcome. What better way to greet the winter season!

WHEN: Sunday, Dec. 2, 4-7 p.m.
WHERE: Home of Jill Hoy (near Davis Square in Somerville, Mass.)
RSVP by Friday, Nov. 23
