Fire up your Big Red spirit, study up on the words to “Davy” and rally out to the Museum Row home of Dr. Donald Wallens to enjoy the kind of bright and sunny warm-weather Southern California tailgate party most Cornellians can only dream about. Tara Roth, Jordan Wallens, Donald Wallens and Peter Wilhelm welcome Southern California-area Cornell alumni and their kin. Gather outdoors in front of Donald’s 60-inch TV to watch the Big Red football team take on Dartmouth.
All cookout necessities will be provided. Just try to arrive in carnelian and white logo-heavy Cornell gear, and come ready to celebrate with vintage tailgate grilling, cold beer, savory Bloody Marys, burgers and brats for all. Families encouraged. Kids ride free. Lyft cars will be standing by—no judgin’. Please join us for this casual festive gathering, reminiscent of great times, promoting the greater good. This event promises to rate as a unique throwback treat, where fresh memories are made and old friendships rekindled.
