UVA vs. Boise State Game Watch
September 22, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Come join your fellow Hoos as we cheer on the University of Virginia Cavaliers as they face off against the Boise State Broncos under the lights on Friday, September 22nd!
The UVA Club of DC is excited to be hosting its first ever pregame social and game watch at Town Hall, a staple of the Glover Park neighborhood and longtime supporter of local Wahoos!
We have reserved the upstairs bar, where there will be happy hour food and drink specials all night and a surprise signature drink from one of our very own Corner bars. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to connect with fellow Wahoos in the area and cheer on Dear Old UVA!
Pregame Social: 6:00pm
The DC Hoos will also be collecting donations at the event for our local partner, Horton’s Kids, for their emergency food pantry at its Community Resource Center in Anacostia. Horton’s Kids empowers children living in one of Washington, DC’s most under-resourced and violent communities, so that they graduate from high school ready for success in college, career, and life.
