BERC Fall Gala

Special Event | October 28 | 6-10 p.m. |  Hotel Shattuck Plaza


Berkeley Energy and Resources Collaborative

The BERC Fall Gala is the signature fundraising event for Berkeley’s energy and resources community, bringing together industry and alumni with students and faculty to celebrate BERC’s fifth anniversary and to kick off the 2010-11 academic year.

The inaugural Gala dinner will take place Thursday, October 28, 2010 at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza in Downtown Berkeley. BERC invites all community members to join us. Come to connect with past acquaintances, meet new friends, and celebrate the best and brightest in the burgeoning energy and resources field with the presentation of the first annual BERC Leadership Award.

The ticket price includes dinner and wine. Attire is business casual.

Your ticket purchase and donations will support a variety of core BERC programs, including those described below. If you would like to direct your contribution to a particular program or event, please indicate this in the field provided.
