A slideshow will feature throwback pictures from our #WaddellDays, and we’ll have an on-site photo booth where you’ll be able to take home snapshots of new memories with the Waddell family.

Please purchase a “free” ticket on Eventbrite to RSVP - cost of entry will be determined by the club staff and will be due at the door.

Raiders Who Brunch + Classmate Memorial

Sunday, 6/30, 11am-1pm

Bottomless mimosas anyone?! Start your Sunday off right by brunching with your fellow Raiders. We will be coming together at a local restaurant to enjoy a meal. We will also be celebrating the lives of our fellow classmates who are no longer with us by having a moment of silence and providing people an opportunity to share a few heartfelt words.

Attire: This is brunch folks, not just Sunday morning breakfast. Come a little cute, a little chic, a little dapper. Photos will be taken at this event, so please don’t leave the house without your edges laid or your beard properly moisturized.

This is a RSVP only event -- no walk-ins allowed. The RSVP is free; you will be responsible for the cost of your meal/drinks at the restaurant.

Ticket costs only go to cover our expenses, including park shelter rental, food costs/catering, DJ, venue rentals, photobooth rentals, alcohol, etc. Tickets are non-refundable unless we modify/change the event or cancel the reunion. If we do not receive enough ticket purchases by April 25th, we will need to modify reunion events.
