Over 60 SPIRE and UCLA Real Estate Alumni Group (REAG) members and guests came together for a mixer followed by the Stanford Cardinal vs. UCLA Bruins men's hoops at Pauley Pavilion. The mixer was a great way to kick off the night and provided a nice opportunity for the two organizations to get to know one another. We also had some kids who came along with their dads and made for an even livelier event!
Going into the game, the Stanford men's basketball team was boasting a 14-2 record, having come off a 61-55 win against Washington and an 88-62 win against Washington State the week before.
It was an exciting game and Stanford beat UCLA 74-59, placing them at 15-2 overall and 4-2 in the Pac-12 conference. It was also Stanford's first win at UCLA in 15 years!
The joint event was a nice way for SPIRE to start 2020 in Southern California and we're looking forward to partnering with UCLA REAG on future events.
