Now that was an Adstravaganza!

Start with 250 BU advertising, entertainment and publishing alumni, stir and shake (apologies to James Bond) a boat load of Ad-tini cocktails, add a dash of Walter Lubars, mix in the advertising professors at COM, have Warner Bros. Records jazz artist Peter Cincotti play up a storm and put it all at Branch Night Club in New York City, and voila, serious Adstravanganza!

This was a big bash evening where alumni reconnected with their friends and professors. Walter Lubars got a well deserved surprise when his son David Lubars, Chairman and CCO of BBDO North America announced an advertising scholarship in Walter’s name.

Was it as good for you as it was for us? Post your favorite tales and photos from Adstravanganza! on the blog. What happens at Adstravanganza! doesn’t stay at Adstravaganza!
