Seeking Centrally-Located Place for BSLUGs Annual Holiday Party!

Our annual holiday party in December is a fundraiser for the Smith Renaissance Society which "serves the college dreams of independent students who are current or former foster youth, runaways, juvenile offenders, orphans, or homeless youths." We typically have a fabulous dinner with a great group of about 20-30 Banana Slugs, including their friends and family. It's always a fun, festive time where we have the opportunity to see our old friends and meet new ones connected to UCSC. 

We ask for a donation of any amount from those attending the dinner and all the money raised (usually around $1200) goes to the Smith Society. It often gets matched and goes a lot further. This fundraiser is a keystone event for the BSLUGS.

The BSLUG treasury pays for the dinner, but in order to make this a successful fundraiser, we need to have a place, centrally-located, at which to hold the party free of charge. 

If you think you'd be able to help us out either by being our host, lending us your living/dining room or office space for the evening or by giving us a tip as to a very affordable place to rent, we would hugely appreciate it.
 The host is not required to do anything to help set up the party. The BSLUG Board will happily bring everything and clean up afterwards.

If you have any ideas about a nice centrally-located venue or would be willing to host the party yourself this December, please let me know as soon as possible.

Thank you and hope to see you soon at the BSLUG Holiday Party!
