Babson Baffoonery – Yoga and Dancing
My colleague, Kathy Smith, enjoyed watching me embarrass myself and summed it up nicely in the piece below. Enjoy!
Babsonâ€™s first Buffoonery in 1992 featured an a cappella group, rock band and skit about a not-so-typical dinner party. If yesterday is any indication, the 25th Anniversary Buffoonery will make the founders of this irreverent MBA tradition proud! Â Leading up to the main event this Saturday at District Hall in Boston, Dean Will Lamb, aka â€śThe Jesterâ€ť and Director of Admissions Jeff Carbone, aka â€śT-Rexâ€ť, rose to the Buffoonery fundraising challenge. With a little help from master of ceremonies Mark Gagliardi MBAâ€™17, Will and Jeffâ€™s performances in Olin Hall gave new meaning to Entrepreneurial Thought and Action! Â The Jester (Dean Lamb) led dancers in his version of the Macarena and T-Rex (Jeff Carbone) instructed students in the art of dinosaur yoga. Along with members of the Babson community, their antics helped raise $1,200 toward the MBA Class of 2017â€™s $4,500 goal.Â Buffoonery is an annual fundraiser for the Graduate Student Council, Class Gift and The Fund for Babson.
Keeping with Babson tradition, Saturdayâ€™s Buffoonery in Boston will feature students and faculty roasting members of the Babson community. No one is safe!
