Cal Alumni Saddle Club dinner

The final Cal Alumni Club dinner for 2022 will be on Wednesday, October 19, at the Wild Oak Saddle Club.

The speaker will be award-winning Press Democrat writer Kerry Benefield, whose topic will be “From the Daily Cal to the Press Democrat: A Golden Bear’s Perspective on the News Business.”  Kerry has been working at the Press Democrat since 2003. As a writer on the sports desk, she was honored three times in the Associated Press Sports Writers Top Ten Columnists category and won a Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News for the newspaper’s coverage of the 2017 wildfires. Additionally, she was named Press Democrat’s best columnist in 2021 and took home the highest award among columnists in California. Her recent piece on a Santa Rosa man’s decision to medically hasten his death won first place in the state for writing.

The cost of the dinner is $50.00 for members of the Cal Alumni Club and their guests. Non-members are welcome as a “Friend of Cal,” and the cost is $60.00 per person. Donations to the scholarship program, which among other things benefit SRJC students who transfer to Cal, are welcome.

Cocktails will begin at 5:00 and are included in the price. The dinner will be meatloaf with brown sugar glaze, mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, garden salad and apple crisp with whipped cream. Wine will be on the tables. Reservations and payment must be received by Friday, October 14.
