Ready to cheer for alma mater, more than 130 St. John’s
University alumni and friends gathered for a pre-game reception
before the men’s basketball game against Georgetown University at
Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, March 3, 2009.
The considerable crowd enjoyed good food and drink while
catching up with one another. “This is a great turnout and I always
enjoy myself at these receptions,” said Angelo Dell’Olio '80SVC who
is a big fan of the Red Storm and the annual pre-game receptions.
“This is [also] a good venue to see fellow alumni some who I have
not seen in years.”
Bill Schaeffer '73CBA, Director of Alumni Relations thanked
everyone for coming and notified attendees about the upcoming St
Patrick’s Day Breakfast and Parade as well as Alumni Reunion
Celebration 2009. The reception concluded as alumni and friends
made their way to their seats to watch as St. John’s went on to win
against Georgetown, 59-56 in overtime.
The final pre-game reception in a series of five this season
sponsored by the Office of Alumni Relations, the event was also
co-sponsored by University corporate partner Brooks Brothers and
the Black Alumni Association (BAA) in honor of the 20th anniversary
of its founding.
