Alumni Dinner at Pizza House

October 13, 2006
After the day long dedication of Weill Hall festivities, the Ford School hosted nearly 100 alumni and their guests at a nearby restaurant for a casual dinner of pizza and salad. Dean Blank thanked alumni for their support of the campaign to construct Weill Hall and for their ongoing support of the School. 'It's wonderful to have so many alumni here to celebrate with us today. I hope you will view Weill Hall as your new home, too, and come back often,' Dean Blank said.
