SIXTH ANNUAL DC CAL ALUMNI RECEPTION
MAY 16, 2015
HONORING THE VERY REVEREND GARY HALL OF THE WASHINGTON NATIONAL CATHEDRAL
The details are in for our 6th Annual Reception and we have a terrific guest of honor lined up to speak to you.
This year we honor an amazing Cal grad, “The Very Reverend”, Gary Hall of the Washington National Cathedral. Dr. Hall earned an A.B. in English at Berkeley in 1972 and assumed his duties as Dean, Ecclesiastical Leader and Executive Officer at the National Cathedral in 2012. Since then you might say he has lent a bit of “Berkeley attitude” to his position, hosting panel discussions and forums tackling the tough issues of our time, with such titles as;
Civil War to Civil Rights
After Ferguson: Racism, Violence, and the Church’s Response
The Legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Letter from Birmingham City Jail”
Honoring LGBT Youth
Let Freedom Ring
Panel Discussion: The Muslim Experience in America
The Shape of a Second Term: President Obama and Presidential Legacy

The event will be held at the historic Cosmos Club from 5 - 8 pm. Delectable Hor’s D’oevres can be enjoyed along with cocktails prior to the Reverend’s address. Space is limited. To assure your attendance, PLEASE DO NOT DELAY signing up for the event. Early RSVPs pay a discounted entry fee. This is our most formal event of the year and we expect a sell out.
