Event Details

More than a dozen Stanford young alumni gathered on January 25th at Oracle Arena to successfully kick off SPIRE’s first young alumni event as the 2017 NBA Champions Golden State Warriors handily beat the Timberwolves on Stanford Night.

Though it was a chillier-than-normal evening as attendees assembled before the game for a cheese and wine tailgate, things later heated up as Kevin Durant had a triple-double and the Warriors scored a season-high 21 three pointers in their dominating 125-113 victory. Attendees received a special edition Stanford/Warriors hat and were also invited to join Assistant General Manager of the Warriors Kirk Lacob (’10) for a post-game chalk talk.

The event was a first in a series focused on young alumni networking and professional development. Over the summer, several young alumni came together with SPIRE to find more ways to engage young alumni within the real estate community. Of the many ideas put forward, one clear theme emerged: the need for young alumni-geared programming to attract and encourage Stanford young professionals to get to know each other, talk about careers, and build valuable peer networks. 

Young alumni event ideas are welcomed as we continue to plan additional young alumni events through the year.
