Sunday Supper - March
with guest: Shan Arora
Director, The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design
Sunday Suppers are casual gatherings where new ideas and stimulating conversation are the main fare at interesting restaurants. The guest speaker leads an informal discussion based on their work or topic of interest. Reservations are open to current Harvard Club of Georgia members and their guests on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendance is limited to 12 people so that the conversation is more personal and happens around the dinner table. Purchasing a $15.00 ticket reserves your seat at the table and contributes towards the guest speaker's meal. Each attendee orders their own meal and is responsible for his/her check.
COST: $15.00 reservation
RSVP: Open to first twelve HCG members (plus one guest)
