GVSU LGBT Alumni Networking Event
Tuesday, February 7, 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Well congratulations, you survived another year of work ‘parties’, family ‘gatherings’, and all of the coping mechanisms (alcohol perhaps?) that got you through. Here’s to a new year where we’ll do it all again – but hopefully better.
To kick it off in good spirits, we hope you’ll join the GVSU LGBT Alumni Chapter for our 2017 winter fundraiser. We’ll be announcing our event lineup for the year and raising money to support further community outreach. Plus, you’ll have a chance to meet our new Advisory Board members.
