PCA-SDR Member Winter Formal (formerly Installation Banquet)

January 9, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm UTC-8

Come one, come all to our annual PCA-SDR Member Winter Formal!  Our Winter Formal is an opportunity to get dressed up (formal), meet new members, connect with old friends, have delicious dinner and drinks, and dance the night away! Let us roll out the red carpet for you, and celebrate the evening in style! We will have a formal red carpet style photographer there to snap your photos with our PCA-SDR backdrop. Dinner and wine will be served, and our favorite band, Superbad will top off the night with some funk and disco tunes to help us dance the night away! This evening is even more special as we will also be celebrating the Board Members of 2015 and all of our club accomplishments, and then welcoming and introducing our 2016 Board, so that you can get to know all of the volunteers who will be serving you in 2016. This joyous event will take place on Saturday, January 9, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. AND, If you still have some party left in you, the Gaslamp District is a quick stroll away!

We are hosting this evening of dinner, dancing, and celebration at the illustrious Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina! (333 W.
