Annual BSLUG holiday party

3:30 - 6 p.m.

At the home of Mary Jane and Peter Suzman

14 Leonard Street, West Newton, Mass.

The party is a fundraiser for the Smith Scholastic Society/Renaissance Scholars Program, 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.

Thanks to the marvelous generosity of Mary Jane and Peter Suzman, the festivities will be held for a fifth time at their home in West Newton, Mass. For all of you who have come in years past, you know this is great news. You'll not only enjoy the wonderful company of fellow UCSC alums, but also partake of an extraordinary assortment of scones, various little sandwiches, and festive sweets accompanied by Mary Jane's delicious and aromatic wine punch.

Friends and family are also welcome! It's the perfect way to greet the winter season.
