No ice bucket required – MasonRVA and the George Mason Alumni Board challenge Mason Alumni in the Greater Richmond Region to connect to your Alma Mater this week!
Here are just a few reasons this will be a great week to engage!
Serve our Community…
On Wednesday, September 17th, Mason Nation will defend our bragging rights in Richmond, Virginia (RVA) at the 2nd Annual Alumni Charity Challenge. The charity challenge is a great way to show your support for both RVA and Mason. Come out on Wednesday evening to see just how far our alumni board is willing to go to support local alumni chapters and the communities we serve. We hope you will stay and visit, but even if you only have time to stop by and drop off a donation, you will not be disappointed! Go Mason! Beat VCU! and Tech and the Hoos…
Energize your Mason Pride…
Still trying to decide what to do this weekend? It is never too late to decide to attend Alumni Weekend.
Alumni Weekend is a great opportunity to be inspired and you don’t have to attend the whole weekend to benefit.
Decide last minute to drive up to Fairfax to visit some old friends that got stuck up in NoVa and plan to take just a few hours to visit the campus for one of the following events:
The State of the University
2 to 3 p.m.
Johnson Center, Third Floor, George’s Restaurant
Dr. Ángel Cabrera will discuss what’s ahead for Mason and how alumni can make a difference. President Cabrera will be joined by Senior Vice President J.J. Davis, Provost David Wu, Athletic Director Brad Edwards and other university leaders.
Green and Gold Bash
When: 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. Fairfax Campus
Where: The Tent at the George Mason Statue, Johnson Center North Plaza
Cost: $15 early-bird pricing until 9/15 General Admission: $20
Additional $5 for Spirit Tasting (first 50 registrants get a whiskey fluted shot glass)
If you don’t do anything else for Alumni Weekend, this event is not to be missed. Whether your years at Mason were groovy, dynamite, far out, rad, cool, out of sight or totally awesome the Green and Gold Bash is the event for you. We’ve got lots in store, including a performance by The Green Machine, a spirited tasting presented by A. Smith Bowman Distillery, and mouthwatering cuisine paired with a selection of regional beers and wine served by Grafton Street Restaurant and Irish Pub. We’ll have caricature artists on hand to draw you at your best, and a photo booth to squeeze in and capture the moment. Don’t miss this opportunity to create more Mason memories.
