The UCLA Alumnae Sip & Share Series aims to build an empowered network of women that choose to uplift alumnae. This year’s series focuses on the optimistic, creative and innovative spirit of our Bruin women. The creation of this online series is a response to the regularly programmed UCLA Alumnae conference being postponed due to the pandemic.
The “She’s a Bruin” box, will include one item from each of our speakers. The box will include a flavored syrup, provided by Genever, for gin drinks, a bag of “loyalty” coffee from Nguyen Coffee Supply, and a “Xelas” baseball cap, provided by House of Xelas, that is customized using UCLA blue and gold. There will also be two stickers inside the box representing the series, one of the stickers mentioned will be created from a winning design selected from the art submission contest mentioned below.
