PAST AND UPCOMING EVENTS:

This fall, GSC has been sponsoring a night out on the town for our friends! Come join us for the next party.

• THE AMBASSADOR HAPPY HOUR-9/13
Our first event was held at The Ambassador on 9/13 for a special $2 Tuesday Happy Hour. Our marketing team and the founders of Global Service Corps, Rick and Maxine Lathrop, spent an evening schmoozing and discussing the many programs and issues that GSC has continued to address since it’s founding in 1993. We had a wonderful time getting to know you all, and hope to see you again at upcoming events!

• SWANK HAPPY HOUR: 10/16
Drink specials for those who donated to GSC were available, as well as great music with DJ MELL, comfortable ambiance, and good discussions revolving around GSC.

• SALSA DANCING @ CIRCOLO- 11/3 from 7:30-11pm
Our next informal bash will have a bit of a Latin kick to it! This will certainly be a night to remember, as there will be professional salsa instructors giving a salsa lesson, and performances throughout the evening. By the end of the evening we hope to see everyone groovin’ on the dance floor! There will be drink specials, good company and of course, plenty of dancin’ room! Put on your dancing shoes and come spend some time with us.
