The Annual HRSM Alumni Homecoming Party

Thank you to everyone who was a part of the 39th Annual HRSM Alumni Homecoming Party on October 27, 2017! It was a fantastic evening with more than 300 attendees, and the silent auction raised more than $12,000 which will support student scholarships and HRSM alumni society operations. The party was a great kickoff to Homecoming weekend and the Gamecocks capped it off with a win against Vanderbilt!

This event would not be possible without the amazing support of our sponsors, auction donors, staff, HRSM Alumni Society Board and volunteers who gave so generously to make our 2017 party a success.
