The Holy Cross Alumni Association (HCAA) will be holding Winter Homecoming 2014 on Saturday, Feb. 15 at the College of the Holy Cross. The day-long event features annual traditions and new events, and offers alumni and their families an opportunity to return to Mount St. James for plenty of campus fun.
New additions to the schedule this year include a chance to meet the Crusader in the Hart Center Lobby between 10:30 and 11:30 a.m.; a Zentangle workshop offered by Sharon Matys, graphic arts, in the Hogan Campus Center, Room 408/409 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.; a networking reception for alumni in education in the Hogan Campus Center, Room 320, from 1 to 2:30 p.m.; and a wellness session on self-care, held in the Hogan Campus Center, Room 304, from 2 to 3 p.m. The full schedule of events can be found in the alumni section of the Holy Cross website.
Also being held on Saturday is the fifth annual “Pink the Rink” at the Hart Center during the men’s ice hockey game versus Connecticut at 7 p.m. The team will be wearing a special edition white and pink jersey, which will be auctioned off throughout the game to benefit Pink Revolution, an alliance of dedicated individuals with a unified commitment to those touched by breast cancer. A ceremonial puck drop will feature Nancy Vidal, mother of forward Matt Vidal ‘16 (Manorville, N.Y.) and a breast cancer survivor. A limited number of special edition “Pink the Rink” t-shirts will be available for purchase, along with a chuck-a-puck competition during an intermission and a 50/50 raffle. To order game tickets, call the Holy Cross Athletics Ticket Office at 508-793-2573.
