A Day at the Races! BPLG Scholarship Fundraiser – June 10th

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

It’s that time again!  Time for the  BPLG traditional Day at the Races scholarship fundraiser.  Join us at Golden Gate Fields on June 10th for friends,  food and horses (at least that’s the order I have).  The last day to place your order is May 31st , so order your tickets early to make sure you don’t miss out .  Then put on your traditional race day hat (no baseball hats though) and meet and greet with your BPLG friends and their families.  Bring your appetite because the food is plentiful and if you enjoy watching the horses, cheer on your favorite jockey or cheer the fact that our scholarship fund is growing with your help!

It’s that time of year again.  Time to pull out your candles, photos or objects that represent loved ones who have departed, bring out the hot chocolate and pan de muertos and celebrate Día de Los Muertos!  Join the National Hispanic University as they team up with the YMCA to bring you a totally awesome day of celebration, complete with danza, mariachi, ballet folklórico and more.  Feel free to dress up and wear your super librarian costume (that’s my choice) or pull on a máscara to hide your true identity and celebrate with NHU!
