ANNUAL DINNER FEATURING JAMES YEH '87 - APRIL 17, 2023
It's time once again for PCC's Annual Dinner! This year, the Tigers are on the loose in the Wild West (Loop)!
Join fellow alumni, parents, and friends as we enjoy a conversation between our honored speaker James Yeh '87 (as in Yeh College) – University Trustee, co-chair of the Venture Forward steering committee, and a director of PRINCO – and Bob Murley '72 – Vice Chairman of Credit Suisse and Emeritus Charter Trustee of the University and of PRINCO (among many other accomplishments and roles). We will also honor two others for their service to Princeton and to our Chicagoland community.
We hope that many of you will consider reserving Benefactor tickets and helping to ensure the success of this event. The support of our Tiger Benefactors enables us to offer special discounted rates for recent grads, current students, and Princeton AlumniCorps (formerly Project 55) fellows, and host newly admitted students in the Class of 2027. Benefactor tickets include reserved seating and admittance to the 5:00 pm Pre-Reception, and your generosity will be noted in the dinner program if desired.
If you cannot attend or would like to further support the Annual Dinner, please choose the EXTRA ticket option and purchase many of them! THANK YOU!
