San Francisco Giants Business Networking Event [SOLD OUT]

SOLD OUT! Join us for an exciting evening as our San Francisco Giants face-off against the Philadelphia Phillies. This early season game creates an excellent backdrop for the Wharton Club's first business networking event with the Giants.

Sold Out!

The San Francisco Giants begin the 2013 season defending their 2nd World Series Championship in 3 years. They will be tested early in the season by Wharton’s hometown and 2008 World Series Champions the Phillies.

Based on popular demand……we are introducing our first weekday business networking event with the Giants. The evening will begin with early entrance to the stadium to join your fellow Alums at the Virgin America Flight Deck at Club Level. This private outdoor patio bar inside the stadium will be an excellent place for you to unwind after a busy day. The weather is perfect for baseball this time of the year, and a great opportunity to enjoy a game while meeting fellow Alumni in the area.

Around 6:00pm we will adjourn to the Executive Conference Room for a special presentation from Lisa Pantages, Giants Vice President of Finance, and Bill Schlough, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer.  As a Wharton Alum, Bill has been a great partner with the Club. He is continuing the tradition with our 1st weekday event at AT&T Park. They will address many of the new and exciting projects the San Francisco Giants are undertaking following three successful seasons.... And discuss how their strategy has evolved compared to 4 years ago before their 1st World Series Championship.

The game starts at 7:15pm. With our 8 year partnership with the Giants, we have secured discounted premium seats at Club Level. This private section of the stadium offers amenities exclusively for club level ticket holders... and provides an excellent setting for networking while enjoying the game. The Giants sold out every home game last year. With all the anticipation for this season we expect our game to be sold out……So there are limited tickets for this event with no ability to obtain additional tickets at the discounted price. So please register early!
