Register for the Ebony Bobcat Network reunion weekend Aug. 14-16

L.A. chapter preps for Hollywood Bowl

The best route to an L.A. Bobcat’s heart is music, food and entertainment—this year’s Hollywood Bowl has all three. For over 10 years this annual signature event has attracted Bobcats from 1950’s graduates to current students residing in L.A. For the last decade, the group has come together for a pre-concert reception and attended performances ranging from ABBA and Earth, Wind and Fire, to a Beatles tribute and Grease sing-along. On July 11 they will see crooner Harry Connick, Jr.

“The Hollywood Bowl outing has grown to be one of our most popular events and now attracts close to 100 Bobcats yearly,” said Jen Jones Donatelli, BBA ’89, chapter co-president. “There’s nothing better than great music under the stars in the heart of Hollywood, surrounded by fellow alumni.” Register for the L.A. event here.
