Thanksgiving is coming up soon, and even though most of us do not celebrate this holiday in our respective countries, none of us lack reasons to be grateful.
This committee is one of the things we are most thankful for, and for this reason, we want to invite everyone to BISCgiving. This will be a time to celebrate in recognition of everyone's hard work and commitment to our mission, and to have fun among our beloved international family.
BISCgiving will take place on Wednesday, November 15 at 8:30pm, at 15 Fones Alley.
There will be great food, drinks, and music, so be ready to #getbiscy
Dress code is formal.
