Cornell Holiday Mixer

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!


The Holidays are upon us so let’s get together and celebrate! Hope to see you at our November 28th Cornell Alumni Mixer!

Our friends at The Resort at Pelican Hill Newport Beach have invited us to use the Great Room Social Lounge to gather and give one last Hail to our Alma Mater, Cornell. Since it is the holidays, we encourage everyone to wear their best (or ugliest) Holiday Sweater. Feel free to arrive a little bit early, as a live vocalist typically performs from 5-7pm. Pelican Hill has also extended their $5 at 5 p.m. wine special throughout the evening exclusively for us.

I look forward to seeing everyone on the 28th.


Perched upon 504 acres of unrivaled coastal beauty, Pelican Hill® is set apart as a world unto itself, offering a feast for the senses and a holiday retreat for family and friends. You’ve never gathered in the Great Room quite like this. Our Social Lounge is a lively scene of contemporary music, creative cocktails, small bites and seasonal activities. Mix and mingle by day with friends, or unwind late into the night with a mix of current hits and popular classics.
