March Mashup

March Mashup 2

We shared a lot of laughs and good conversations at the March Mashup virtual networking happy hour this week! The mashup theme of St. Paddy's Day + college basketball gave us plenty of ideas for fun activities.

Congrats to Roger Johnson of Albemarle County, who won a $20 gift card for lunch at Angelic's Kitchen in our "Luckiest Leprechaun" game. Don Giannangeli, Keith O'Neil, Scott Danielson, and Frank Squillace all tied for second place. Gavin Raphael was the winner of a lightning round of basketball trivia.

We kicked off the evening with a few clips from Matthew O'Donnell's St. Paddy's Eve livestream concert.

Then, we all learned our leprechaun names. What's yours?

After a round of conversations about our favorite basketball memories and the 2019 NCAA championship (Go Hoos!), we enjoyed a little Irish dance from around the world.

After another round of conversations on how we'd spend a pot of gold, it was time for a few minutes of UVA basketball action.
