Faculty and staff holiday reception promises jolly mingle and jingle

Tickets are now available for the Faculty & Staff Holiday Mingle and Jingle, noon Tuesday, December 13, in Vanier Hall’s Winclare Room A.

The event promises festive food stations, live entertainment, door prizes and the company of friends and colleagues at a stand-up reception in a casual, holiday setting. It’s a change from last year’s buffet banquet, says catering manager Dean Kissner.

“We wanted to accommodate everyone and a formal sit-down meal just didn’t seem to do anymore,” he says. “This way will allow for everyone to see more of their friends – and the fact that tickets can be so much more affordable is a bonus.”

Tickets are $8 per person, including tax and a festive glass of wine. Each department is asked to delegate an individual to coordinate ticket purchases; they are available until December 9 from Catering Services; phone 519-253-3000, ext. 3277 or 3276.

In addition, a collection of canned goods and cash donations at the door will support the Student Food Bank.
