Dave & Busters was the scene for camaraderie, libations, dinner, games, prizes and song—all shared by members of five OC media associations. Billed as the Gala Inter-Media-Association Holiday Party, the event jump started the 09 Holiday Season with a cheerful bash.

Everyone who attended went home with a gift in their hands, not to mention a full stomach and a smile on their face.
