The Wharton SoCal Gala is TODAY! Join us on Tuesday, August 20th. We've rented a swanky private beach club, hired an outrageously talented chef, booked the grooviest band in the land and ordered up scads of the finest rum, spirits and wine.  All that's left is for you to join us and enjoy a mid-summer night's escape!   

Meet new students, rekindle old friendships, welcome new alumni or have a drink with a favorite professor.  Network (and dance) like no one is watching and generally hang out with fellow alums and have a great time.  We've sold out the event for the past decade so join us for this year's party!

Logistics and other particulars:

Where:  Jonathan Club - 850 Palisades Beach Road.

When:  Tuesday, August 20th from 6pm - 10pm  

Dinner: Includes a buffet  + 2 drinks + coffee/tea and dessert

Drinks: Two drinks are included. Additional drinks are available at the event, or buy advance drink tickets online in addition to your ticket/membership.

Parking:  Parking is included at the Club with your ticket purchase. Click here for directions to the Jonathan Beach Club North Parking Lot. Be sure to let the attendant know that you are attending an event at the Jonathan Beach Club. You will be given a parking pass at the gate at no cost. Arriving northbound on PCH, the parking entrance will be on the left hand side, just north of the club building (covered in ivy), you will have to make a u-turn (safely) to enter. Please do not enter the club to park, they will ask you to go to the designated lot.

Entertainment: Live music (it's a surprise!).

Bonfire: The bonfire is cancelled.  Santa Monica does not permit fires on the beach!

Attire: Summer business casual. No shorts, t-shirts, or flip flops. Portions of the event will be on the club's gorgeous private beach so bring shoes that can get sandy.  Remember this is L.A.  - so  bring something warm for when the sun goes down.  Also, and this is important, there is no cell phone use allowed and smoking is not tolerated.

This event is only open to Wharton and Penn alumni (and their spouse/significant other/guest), current students, and families.

A Wharton Alum and not a member yet?  Take advantage of our 1-year club membership + dinner package!

A Penn Alum?  All Penn Alums MUST register on the PennClubLA site and not on the WhartonSoCal site.  Penn Alums go HERE to register.

Help us celebrate another fantastic year together!  Hope to see you there!
