Thank you to everyone who attended the annual Toast to IAP held at the Pyramid Club in Center City Philadelphia on January 21. The event was a great success, with over 30 alums attending from the classes of 1949 through 2004! MIT mug door prizes were awarded to Christina Kaiser (’04) and Cindy Chung (’04), and we are proud to announce that several in attendance recognized the benefits of club membership and decided to become dues-paying members. Special thanks to the Pyramid Club for hosting the event. Our next Young Alum Happy Hour will be held on February 25 at 5:30 PM at a Center City location to be determined.
