SXU alumni host ‘Halfway to Homecoming’ on February 9

It may not be Fat Tuesday, but let’s get Mardi Gras started! Saint Xavier University (SXU) alumni don your feather masks, beads, hats, and costumes, and gather your friends and family to join us on this “Fat Friday” for food, drinks, music and merriment! The event is scheduled for February 9 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at 115 Bourbon Street, 3359 West 115th Street, Merrionette Park.

This year we are also very excited to announce that a portion of the proceeds from this event will go to benefit Swift Outdoor Accessible Recreation (S.O.A.R.).

S.O.A.R. is an organization dedicated to raising funds through events to help improve and regain the life and some functionality for people living with paralysis. Their ultimate goal is to foster collaboration and engage researchers, entrepreneurs and philanthropists to assist in empowering others to live a fuller life.
