The Alumni Association recognizes that many of our graduates, almost one-third, no longer live in the White Plains or nearby area. Aside from using this website to keep in touch, we are embarking on a program of Regional Receptions to bring a bit of Stepinac to you. 

Our first regional reception was held in Walpole, Massachusetts on September 10, 2005 and was hosted by Ray Cisneros '57, for alumni living in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. 

On May 6, 2006, the Benziger brothers, Mike '69, Joe '73, and Bobby hosted a reception at the Benziger Family Winery in Sonoma, California for alumni living in that area of California. 

A golf outing and cocktail reception was held on March 14, 2007 at PGA National Golf Course and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. for our Florida graduates. There were golfers during the day and non-golfers for cocktails afterwards. 

The Alumni Association had Washington D.C. as its next stop touring the country and visiting with alumni. Terrance McGowan '77 of Goldman Sachs hosted the D.C. Regional Reception at his offices on June 13, 2007. 

An Alumni Regional Reception was held on November 27, 2007 in Boston for those alumni from New England. Blake Godbout '71 hosted the reception at the Boston College Club in Boston from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM with Cocktails and Hors d'oeuvres.
Since 2007 the regional receptions have grown and have been held regularly in the following areas:

Orlando, Florida
Tampa, Florida
Fenway Park 
Naples, Florida
Delray Beach, Florida
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
Cocoa Beach, Florida
San Diego, California
San Francisco, California
Phoenix, Arizona
Saratoga, New York
New York City
Washington, DC
Baltimore, Maryland

Other states where we have large numbers of graduates and would like to have alumni host receptions are New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina. There is no intent to limit such events to only these states as we have graduates in every state. 

Would you host a regional reception for alumni living in your area?
