2018 Wine Tasting and Holiday Party

Join the members of the Columbia Alumni Association of Long Island for an evening of wine tasting and education at our annual holiday party, with professional sommeliers at the home of a fellow alum.  Please RSVP NOW to reserve your glass!

This year, we have a very special host returning, Ken Catandella, who has been with Columbia for more than 12 years in various capacities in alumni relations and development. He currently serves as the Senior Executive Director for CAA and University Relations. In his current role, Ken coordinates the administrative and logistical facets for the CAA Board as well as many of its committees and is a member of the Administrative Support Team for the CAA 2017 and its Steering Committee. He serves as a University liaison to the Columbia University Club of New York and is involved in numerous strategic initiatives and development programs.

We are once again offering special pricing for this event, to encourage members to join. Our Annual Membership Drive will continue and ask you to consider joining for a nominal annual fee of $35 – or $25 for recent grads within the past 10 years. Your membership will provide free or discounted admission to this and future events as well as priority invites to Columbia Association Alumni offerings. 

Feel free to bring along a guest, or better yet a fellow Columbia University graduate! When you become a new member or renew your membership at $35.00 ($25 for recent grads) you receive a year of CAALI membership and free entry to the wine tasting party. Non-members will be charged $50 and guests of members will be charged $25.
