When: Tuesday, August 21st, 2018, 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Where: The Grand Ballroom, The Claridge

The Grand Ballroom is located on the mezzanine level marked “M” in the elevator. It is one level up from the lobby or one level down from the second floor garage entrance. The Grand Staircase, located near the Art Gallery in the lobby, also provides access to the Grand Ballroom.

Come network with professionals, fellow students, and test your luck on games of chance at this 1920’s themed event! Dressing to the theme is encouraged (but not mandatory). Not able to fit your 1920’s attire in your suitcase? No problem! We will have a few extra accessories to hand out.

The Claridge, also known as the “Skyscraper by the Sea”, has décor styled after the Boardwalk Empire era, which will bring you back to the time when icons such as Marilyn Monroe and Frank Sinatra walked the halls of The Claridge themselves. This atmosphere combined with the games of chance provided by Tumbling Dice and the opportunity to interact with professionals and peers will make for a show stopping networking event you do not want to miss!

Not so great at games of chance? No worries! Tumbling Dice offers training tables where you can build up your skill set.

Roughly one hundred professionals will be invited to attend this event. An email with more details about this opportunity has been sent to registered professionals.

Students and invited professionals will receive a catered meal including a free drink. The menu will include mini vegetable spring rolls, mini franks in a blanket, grilled chicken satay on skewers, a pasta station, a slider station, and a seasonal vegetable crudite station.

All students will start the night with a set amount of “AFS money” provided by our games of chance vendor, Tumbling Dice. Professionals will have additional “AFS money” to hand out to students who network with them. At the end of the night, students can redeem every $100 of collected “AFS money” for a ticket which will be entered into a raffle for a $50 Visa gift card.
