@MasonRVA would like to thank those who made it possible to win “Bragging Rights” (sorry if we miss anyone)…

Anna Goltz – the best Alumni Rep ever @MasonAlumni – for driving down from Mason and bringing the tent, the swag, and her husband.  Not sure how you left at 3:30 and got to RVA before 5:30 – probably don’t want to know.

Brian Jones @B_R_Jones – for bringing the donations from the friends of MasonRVA from up north.

Alumni Charity Challenge @ Hardywood Park Tonight (Oct 23)!


Alumni Charity Challenge

Don’t forget to pickup some canned goods on the way home tonight to bring to the Alumni Charity Challenge tomorrow (Wed, Oct 23rd 5:30 – 8:30)  @ Hardywood Park for the Central Virginia Food Bank.

Deliver your canned goods to the tent with the MasonRVA banner and enter the MasonRVA raffle for a chance to win two tickets for an RVA Brewery Tour.  You will get one entry for each canned good you donate.  We will also draw one raffle ticket each half hour for a $5 Hardywood gift certificate.  Better still, we will have some Mason swag too (we may even have a few MasonRVA koozies left)

Come out show your support for George Mason, meet some new friends, and enjoy some great food and drink.

Bring your friends who graduated from other fine universities and encourage them to bring and donate canned goods and enter the raffle (and help Mason win the challenge)!  Everyone is welcome at the MasonRVA tent!

This is a great cause – there so is NO EXCUSE not to stop by!

Go Mason!

(BTW, Hardwood is coming to Northern Virginia soon!)
