Smith School Hosts Annual Monte Carlo Night
Mark your calendars for the Robert H. Smith School of Business’ largest party
of the year: Monte Carlo Night.
Join us on Saturday, February 18, 2012 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington,
D.C., for a night of non-stop fun. This year everything is bigger and better, with
live music, LED gaming tables, a larger room, extra bars, and an after party with
drink specials. The party starts at 8 p.m. and lasts until midnight.
Monte Carlo Night began as a fundraising event in 2002. It was established by
MBA students to raise money for a scholarship fund in honor of Michael Scott Lamana
and Eric Cranford, Smith school part-time MBA students who were victims of the terrorist
attacks of 9/11.
“Over the past decade, Monte Carlo Night has grown into a signature event for
the Smith community, bringing together students from the full-time, part-time and
executive MBA programs, alumni, faculty, and staff,” said Cara Weikel, second-year
Smith MBA student and president of the MBA Association.
“With close to 1,000 participants last year, many consider Monte Carlo Night
as the ‘must-attend event’ for the Smith community – and this year is no exception!
To accommodate the increased scale of the event, this Monte Carlo Night will be
bigger and better than ever. You won’t want to miss this fabulous night of gaming,
dancing and fun with your colleagues and friends. We hope you will join us.”
