Come join us for a Cal Women's Basketball game!

When: Sunday, January 12 at 5:00pm
Where: Haas Pavilion, UC Berkeley
Cost: $6
Friends and family welcome!

The first intercollegiate women’s basketball game was held on April 4, 1896 at the Armory in San Francisco between Stanford and Cal. Fittingly, the official start of the 150W Celebration (150 years of women at Cal) will be the women’s basketball game between Cal and Stanford, to be held on Sunday, January 12, at 5:00pm at Haas Pavilion. Chancellor Carol Christ, former president of Smith College, will be the honorary coach.

The games are super fun and we got a block of 20 group rate tickets for just $6 each! If you want to join, please email club president Stacia: I have the tickets electronically, so I can email them (and they can be scanned) or I can give them to you at the game. If there are more than 20 people, we can add tickets to our block.

Other Upcoming Events:
EBSC Book Club Meeting: "Children Playing Before a Statue of Hercules" (January 7)
Oakland Women's March (January 18 - meet at the corner of 12th St. and Oak St. at 10:45am)
