Say goodbye, Summer — September’s really here, and with it, very soon, all the wonders of fall. But before you settle in with apple cider and pumpkin spice, it’s time bid adieu to the warmest months of the year with a slew of celebrations. Raise that glass, and toast your memories of summer 2015: warm nights, stunning sunsets, and all the outdoor fun you had with IVY members across the country!    

We’re kicking off our celebrations with an End of Summer Soirée at Mercedes Club in New York. Master your cornhole skills one last time with lawn games, while you sip cool drinks from an open bar and listen to the live music.

Already missing those Hampton’s White Parties? Head to Chicago, where we’re taking the White Party to the roof for an end-of-summer cocktail celebration at the Kensington. Members will sip cocktails and reminisce the best memories from summer 2015.

And, finally, nothing says summertime quite like the Harriman Cup—our chance to wear the preppiest, brightest colors for the annual polo match between UVa and Yale. (Did we mention crazy hats? We wear those too.) We’ll enjoy cocktails from a special tent for IVY members, and rumor has it… there’ll even be dancing after the match.

For the more arts-inclined, IVY members will gather for an IVY Museum Tour at the National Portrait Gallery in DC and stare fame in the face. The new exhibit, The Celebrity Gaze, features 53 portraits of American pop culture icons in a variety of media. Members will have opportunity to meet the photographer of the exhibit, Holger Keifer, before heading to a bottomless brunch at the nearby Cedar Restaurant.
