"The Green Line Rivalry": BC GOLD Reception For BC vs. BU

--Ed. Note: Below is a message from BC alum Steph St. Martin regarding a great event for recent alums before the BC/BU game next week!--

As an alumna living in the Boston area, I wanted to send you a quick message about an event that BC GOLD (Graduates Of the Last Decade) is sponsoring.

As you may or may not know, BC Hockey will host Green Live Rival, Boston University, on Friday, January, 17th at 7 p.m. If you have ever been to a BC hockey game, nothing makes Conte more electric than when we play BU.

Last year, BC GOLD did something special – a pre-game reception at before the game (complete with food, drinks and a cash bar). We SOLD OUT the event and from what we heard from our guests, it was one of the best events we had all year.

This year, BC Athletics put aside 125 tickets for this hockey game...all for BC GOLD alums. The pre-game reception will be in the Murray Room inside the Yawkey Center this year and all of our late night favorites will be there, including to-die-for mac & cheese! And I have no doubt it will sell out again. If you already have a ticket, you can attend the reception for $15.

**Those who need a ticket can purchase the combo for $35 -- but the dealine for tickets is this afternoon at 5pm!** You can purchase a pass to the reception only until the day of the game.

The pre-game reception starts at 5:00 -- plenty of time to eat up before the puck drops.

Oh, and one last thing. Just like at last year’s event, there will be a raffle this year. Word on the BC campus is that the prize this year is pretty special. Something about a tour of the BC hockey locker room. :o)

There are only about 100 tickets left, so if you are interested, please register for the event here. You can purchase up to 4 tickets:

I really hope to see you at the game.

Best wishes for 2014 and Go Eagles!
