About the Event: 

They say necessity is the mother of invention, and our hugely creative events team is not letting Covid restrictions get them down.  In the true Yale spirit they are putting together a virtual YCL Christmas Dinner so we can all enjoy our traditional festive end-of-year event  

Based on successfully run past virtual events, all YCL members and their households are invited to join us free of charge for an evening of festive merriment. 

Each house will do their own catering and bartending, and a diverting programme of socialising, entertainment and games will be on offer.

Zoom meeting link will be sent to all registered members, so do please sign up soon!  All registered guests will have their names put into a hat for a prize draw during the event!! 

This will be a wonderful opportunity for all Yale alumni to reconnect with friends, make new connections, share some holiday cheer - and celebrate the end of lock down!
