Special MCA Alumni Gathering – Feb. 7

Special MCA Alumni Gathering – Feb. 7

Homecoming is right around the corner and this year Maranatha Christian Academy is celebrating its 40th year! We would like to offer a few opportunities for alumni to get together. The first opportunity will be after the Topgolf tournament on Thursday, February 7, in the Topgolf restaurant/bar area starting at 6 p.m. Hosting this event at Topgolf will allow any alumni playing in the tournament the chance to just walk to the restaurant/bar area and others who don’t want to participate in the tournament to just come for some fun!

This is the first MCA Alumni gathering of its kind! Consider it a chance to get together, grab something to eat and/or drink, and connect with other alumni. This will be a relatively unstructured event. There will be no MCA staff running the event, rather a few alumni located in the restaurant/bar welcoming everyone.

Simply arrive as close to 6 p.m. as you can at Topgolf in Brooklyn Center, proceed to the restaurant/bar, look for some balloons, grab a name tag, and have some fun. It will be a great way to unwind from a day of work!

Details:

  • Event: MCA Alumni Gathering
  • Location: Topgolf, Brooklyn Center, Minnesota
  • Time: Starts at around 6 p.m. and runs for a few hours
  • What: A chance to meet up with other MCA alumni in a casual and fun setting.
