Manfred Ruddat and Jason Edelstein
Defying the odds, Fred Ruddat, Associate Professor, Emeritus, Department of Ecology and Evolution is selected for an unprecedented third time in the history of the receptions, during the raffle portion of the event. Co-chair Jason Edelstein hides his disbelief admirably.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by the receptions to meet their colleagues and technology partners! And a big thanks to the many hard-working volunteers who make this event a success every year.

Val, Jason, Astrid, and Cheryl
