Andrew Farkas Attends the Farkas Hall Dedication Ceremony

The dedication ceremony for Farkas Hall was held on February 10th.  Harvard graduate Andrew Farkas was in attendance and enjoyed performances by the Harvard Krokodiloes and the Radcliffe Pitches during the cocktail reception.  At the close of the ceremony, Andrew spoke about his time at Harvard and his father, Robin Farkas who graduated from Harvard in 1954.  The theater was recently renamed Farkas Hall in honor of Robin Farkas.  To commemorate the event, Sandi Goff Farkas, Andrew’s wife, presented him with an elaborate miniature of Farkas Hall.

After the reception, the Hasty Pudding Club put on a special performance, HPT: 164: There Will Be Flood.  Parts of the play included several Farkas-related jokes.  The Hasty Pudding Club was founded in 1770 and is the nation’s oldest social club.
