Cornell Club of Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton – Annual Big Red Fiesta
May 28, 2015 6pm to 8pm

Description and Location:
Renzo’s of Boca
5999 North Federal Hwy.
Boca Raton, FL 33487

The Cornell Club of Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton is pleased to invite you to attend our 4th annual “BIG RED FIESTA!” Please join us as we celebrate the end of another successful year of Cornell Club of the Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton alumni events and programs.

This year, we’re mixing things up a bit and taking the Fiesta to Spain’s Mediterranean sister, Italy! So in lieu of Manchego cheese and sangria, we’ll be toasting the end of the year with prosciutto and great Italian wines! To host this great event, we’ve coupled with the long established Renzo’s of Boca, which has a long and delicious history in the area for 25 years.

For your $20 cover, we’ve arranged for you to receive a complimentary drink including wine, beer, or well drink as well as the tantalizing “tapas” (appetizers)! You’ll also be in for a real treat as we’ll experience wonderful live musical and vocal performances that will surely have us on our feet! We’ve also arranged for attendees to stay for dinner and enjoy an incredible meal at a discounted rate of 15% off your meal. As space is limited, advance dinner reservations are highly encouraged! We’ll meet you all at 6pm in what they call the Piano Room!

Please also feel free to share this event announcement to any fellow Cornell and other Ivy alumni, as well as any family and friends who are interested in attending as your guests.

See the signature tapas and specials at Renzo’s or visit their Facebook page. For dinner reservations, please call Renzo’s at (561) 994-3495.

**Parking**: Complimentary valet is included. Please just be sure to tip the valet.

For all other inquiries, please direct questions to our host Andrea Virgin ’11 at avirginei@gmail.com.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you all there for some fun and Italian flare!

Springtime is here which means Cornell’s birthday is right around the corner! On April 27, 1865, the governor of New York State signed the bill that officially established Cornell University’s charter. Now, 150 years later, we’ll spend few hours commemorating this day in our history–the day that defined our land-grant mission and set the stage for generations of Cornellians to help, to solve, and to transform the world. Cornell clubs and groups around the world are throwing a Big Red bash in a city, town, or household near you. Wherever you may be, don’t miss out on your chance to party like it’s 1865!

The Cornell Club of Greater Miami and the Florida Keys is please to invite you to the 2015 Charter Day celebration onSATURDAY, APRIL 25TH ON THE CARNIVAL GLORY CRUISE SHIP LOCATED IN THE PORT OF MIAMI.

Additionally, this will be a joint event as we will also be hosting our 2015 Admitted Student Reception. As alumni, you will be able to network with other Cornell graduates while also sharing knowledge with soon to be Cornellians.
