The Viticulture and Enology Alumni Association (VEAA) is hosting a gathering and tailgate at the Department of Viticulture and Enology on Saturday, November 8, 2014 before the Fresno State vs San Jose State football game. Viticulture and enology alumni are encouraged to reserve their football game tickets and/or tailgate BBQ tickets by October 27!
Enjoy mingling with alumni, students, staff, and faculty from the Department of Viticulture and Enology beginning at 4:00 pm. Game time is 7:30 pm.
The V. E. Petrucci Library will be hosting an Open House on Wednesday, October 29th, from 12n-6p. Come by to see the new library, and learn about our collections and services.
A Celebration of Wine, the major annual fundraiser for the Viticulture and Enology Alumni Association and the V.E. Petrucci Library in the Department of Viticulture and Enology, has been suspended for the 2014 year.
While a successful event for over 30 years, declining attendance and profits in recent years has made the A Celebration of Wine less viable as a fundraiser. The VEAA remains committed to supporting the V.E. Petrucci Library, however, and is using this pause to reflect and plan for other events and benefits to continue meeting the financial needs of the library.
The VEAA, the V.E. Petrucci Library, and the Department of Viticulture and Enology would like to thank all of the wineries, restaurants, vendors, sponsors, volunteers, and attendees that made A Celebration of Wine successful for so many years. Please watch for news from the VEAA and the Department of Viticulture and Enology for future events, and if you would like to make a contribution to support the VEAA and the V.E. Petrucci Library, please consider donating to our $40,000 matching challenge.
Thanks again to all our alumni and friends who joined us at our regional Viticulture and Enology Alumni events in the last several weeks. Thanks, also, to our generous sponsors for their support!
