Grad Gala 2011 is a celebration of the UBC community: students, staff, faculty and alumni. It embraces the intimate and special nature of the Okanagan campus and honours graduating students from every faculty with a night they will always remember.
Each year, faculty, staff and alumni volunteer their time at Grad Gala, enabling us to offer students ticket prices at an affordable $25.
Decorate, liquor tickets sellers, coats checkers, table bussers and volunteers for clean up are needed. It is a definite treat for students to be looked after by faculty and staff. Better yet, it’s a lot of fun and totally rewarding for the volunteers who do it!
Please encourage all graduating students to register early online. The band Treelines has been selected by students to headline the event. Non-graduating students and non-students-guests may also attend.
Date: Saturday, Apr. 9
Times: cocktails — 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.; dinner — 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.; dancing — 8:30 p.m. to 12 midnight
Location: Administration building sunroom
Grad Gala tickets are $25. A cash bar will be on premises (government-issued ID required).
