A beautiful autumn evening and a very good time was enjoyed by all attending the 8th Annual UCSF Dental Alumni Association Bear Bash hosted at UCSF's Faculty Alumni House on the evening of Friday, October 14th.
DAA President Mary Porteous was effusive in her gratitude for the extensive efforts to organize and put on the latest edition of the anticipated annual event, which brings together UCSF Dentistry alumni with future alumni: current UCSF dental students.
The delcious food disappeared relatively quickly but the beverages lasted somewhat longer, as twilight descended and the sky above Parnassus Heights glowed red. Rollicking conversations echoed around the former dental fraternity house and door prizes were distributed, including dental supplies, cards redeemable for coffee and other goodies, and dinner with Dean Featherstone.
"Many students came up and thanked the DAA after the event for such a great mixer!" wrote Porteous in an e-mail to co-organizers. "It's a lot of teamwork to put this together, but the students really enjoyed it."
