Looking for a great way to volunteer with the NYC community? Look no further. Many UW alums already mentor at Minds Matter – an organization that mentors high achieving high school students from low income backgrounds in the NYC area. This is a great way to make an impact and network with over 450 NYC volunteers. For more information and to apply, visit www.mindsmatternyc.org or contact JP Harlow (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Great news! The Pac12 Network has chosen NYC to film it’s first destination commercial! We need a few volunteers to represent UW next Saturday, July 20. Please email Shannon O’Grady (email@example.com) if you are able to help!
The concept is below, along with a link to one of their videos with a similar theme (Pauley Pavillion opening).
It will be a two-day shoot that includes all PAC12 NYC alumni clubs – 6 will film on July 20 and the other 6 on July 21. Rival schools will be in the shot together at the same location:
Brooklyn Bridge (Oregon/OSU) 10am (July 20th);
Wall Street (UW/WSU) 1pm (Saturday, July 20th);
Grand Central (COL/UTAH) 4:00pm (July 20th);
Times Square (USC/UCLA) 10am (July 21st);
Fifth Avenue (ARIZONA/ASU) 1pm (July 21st);
Central Park (Cal/Stan) 4pm (July 21st)
Concept: 4+ locations will be used in NYC, all 12 schools must participate (if one school is left out we’ll hear about it), and we must have 2-3 people who look like they can throw a spiral (if there is difficulty in getting club members – perhaps a Ute – we can have one Ute throw the ball). We’ll likely start by zooming in on, for instance, a Ute in Central Park holding a Pac-12 Networks branded football, then motioning to the Cal & UCLA clubs together doing a U-C-L-A and C-A-L with their arms and then have the Ute appear to throw the ball to the Brooklyn Bridge, where Oregon/USC will be. For WSU, we need one alum to wave their flag. Everyone participating should wear school t-shirts, preferably the same colors to show unity (e.g. UCLA wears light blue, Cal wears navy blue). Special NY club t-shirts are even better (e.g. I *Oski* NY).
Hello NYC Huskies,
I would like to encourage you to join our LinkedIn group which is a subgroup of the main UW Alumni group. This group is for University of Washington alums who currently reside in the New York area and is a great way to learn about networking opportunities as well as connect with other UW professionals in the area.

There is still time to sign up for the 40th annual New York Salmon BBQ!

A second train arrives in Chappaqua at 1:39 p.m., but the shuttle to the Gamble home will not be available—you’ll have to take a taxi.
