December 2023 Professionals Networking Event Recap

Fellow Saintsmen, 

Thanks to you, the 3rd-ever St. Augustine Alumni Professionals Network was a resounding success. 

The dinner event started around 6 pm with a meet and greet on campus at the Raymond Center for the Performing Arts. During the meet and greet over 40 distinguished professionals connected and re-connected over drinks, Mona Lisa’s Italian Food (Renata Brunetto-Blum, OLP Class of 2011), and Maya’s Cookies (Ryan Madsen, Saints Class of 2015).

The event saw representation from the class of 1964, up to the class of 2022. 

After prayer, thank yous, and Saints News, we handed over the microphone to Jim Siemann ’08 and Greg Park ’08 from Legacy Park Advisory CPAs who gave us valuable tips for our taxes as the fiscal year comes to an end. 

Lastly, Coach Mike Haupt closed the night strong (as he is known to do) with a moving speech about his story coming to Saints from USD, the teams he has coached, and the ups and downs along the way.
