    Old Angler's Inn, 10801 MacArthur Blvd, Potomac, MD
    Enjoy cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, silent auction and music in the Garden at Old Angler's Inn in Potomac. Tickets are $75. Hosted in memory of Geordan Harris ’03, this event for young alumni supports the Geordan Harris Scholarship Fund at Gonzaga.   Click here for more information, to become a sponsor or to buy tickets. 

    Geordan devoted his full energy to everything he did—whether it was as captain of Gonzaga’s wrestling team or volunteering for a cause important to him. After graduating from Gonzaga in 2003, Geordan went on to Clemson University. After college, he worked at local real estate developer the JBG Companies while earning a Masters in Business Administration from the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, College Park. He also served on the Board of Directors of Access Youth, a local nonprofit.

    After Geordan’s death in 2013, his family, friends, and colleagues established the Geordan Harris Memorial Fund to honor his spirit and passion. Awarded to a rising senior at Gonzaga who exhibits a sense of leadership and motivation to learn, the scholarship provides tuition assistance as well as a paid summer internship.
