Oh What Fun! with Los Angeles Waves

December 7, 2016

6:30 - 9:30 PM

Oh, what fun it is to mingle and jingle with your Los Angeles Waves and GAN LA! Join President Andrew K. Benton, Debby Benton, the new dean of the Graziadio School of Business and Management, Deryck J. van Rensburg, fellow alumni and friends for a one-of-a-kind holiday party and Christmas celebration at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. 


Here, you will take in the sight of the infamous dueling dinos in the Grand Foyer mixed in with the tinsel trees. Then, take a trip to the North Pole to spot a polar bear in the North American Mammal Halls. Trek on to the African Mammal Halls to scout chimpanzees, giraffes, and lions. Finally, go back in time to explore the fascinating prehistoric creatures in the extraordinary, Jane G. Pisano Dinosaur Hall. After traveling to the ends of the earth and back, enjoy delicious hors d'oeuvres by LA Roots Catering Co. and live entertainment by the Pepperdine Pickups, Pepperdine's breakout male a capella group. Be sure to dress in your best holiday cocktail attire, so you're photo booth ready, and then hit the dance floor to beats provided by Reel Vibes Entertainment. Eat, drink, and be merry while you celebrate Christmas and the joy of the holiday season with your Pepperdine family.
