I am writing you today to ask you to sponsor the Serpentine Society’s 17th Annual Awards Gala on Saturday, November 7th! Please join us:

Annual Dinner & Awards Program

Moving Virginia Forward

Saturday, November 7, 2015 | 7PM – Cocktail Reception | 8PM – Dinner & Awards

Newcomb Hall Ballroom | Central Grounds, U.Va. | Charlottesville, VA 22904

The Serpentine Society is an inclusive alumni network dedicated to reaching out to and advocating for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) UVa alumni faculty, staff, and students by engaging in the life of our alma mater.

The Annual Dinner & Awards Program is our only fundraiser of the year, and attracts a wide array of alumni, student, faculty, staff, and community support. It is a celebration of our accomplishments over the past year, and we also present our leadership award annually to recognize alumni who contribute positively to LGBTQ causes within the University community and beyond.

This year’s recipients are Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring and Claire Naomi Kaplan Ph.D., Director of the Gender Violence and Social Change program at the University’s Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center.

We hope that you will join as a sponsor of the 17th Annual Dinner & Awards Program. Information detailing our sponsorship opportunities along with the Sponsorship Form is online here.

If you have any questions, please contact me at (702) 241-6098 or or Lindsay Kijewski, Assistant Director of Alumni Interest Groups at (434) 243-9065 or

Thank you for your time and your support!
